Vallée des Aigles AOP Côtes du Roussillon Villages Saint-Martin 2017
This wine shows dark purple color with an intense ruby reflection. The aroma expresses intense dark berry notes (cherry, blackcurrant and blackberry), followed by violet flower and herb hints ( licorice, mint and thyme). Since the wine is aged in both American and French oak, it shows very complex vanilla, coconut and toasty flavors.
The wine is dry, round and rich in the mouth: matured dark berries mixed with herbal notes (mint and thyme) and dark chocolate. The structure is rich but with a lively acidity that balances it up, leaving a long aftertaste.
