This is Hanaé younger brother Eloi. Produced in a similar style but somewhat lighter with 115grams of residual sugar rather than 170. Still absolutely delicious and will marry fruit tarts to perfection.
Rich and intense bouquet of blackberries and blackcurrant. The structure is well balanced with luscious dense tannins. Notes of liquorice, peppermint and spices. There is a good mineral end on the back palate.
Purple-red robe with ruby hints. The nose opens with light menthol and truffle notes which develop into deeper richer aromas of black olive paste, prunes and figs. The palate is redolent of wild herbs, spice and dried figs. The tannins are elegant and well-integrated. This is a balanced, poised wine that ends on a pleasing mineral note.
