Anjou Villages Brissac (AOC) "Les Millerits" 2020 VIN BIO

Tasting Notes: A dark garnet robe with stunning crimson reflections. Upon decanting, the nose reveals an intense complexity, combining youthful expansiveness with refined sophistication. Ripe red and black fruits, almost candied, intertwine with notes of licorice, wet slate, and tobacco. On the palate, the wine mirrors the olfactory impressions with equal density, vigor, and richness of expression. The tannins are finely textured, enveloped in silkiness. The enduring finish serenely houses the fruits and spices.
