The opaque black, purple core points towards the power that lies beneath, an intensely aromatic nose of ripe cassis with a touch of exotic spice. Despite the explosive concentration and masculinity there is a real sense of purity and focus. Lush ripe black fruit, mocha coffee and notes of cocoa fill all corners of the mouth, wrapped up in a creamy, velvety texture. The finish seems to go on forever, this is classic Mouton.
