Domaine de Castelnau

"Les Muriers" Pinot Noir

Deep color with ruby glints. The nose expresses red stone fruit aromas with balsamic camphor and eucalyptus hints revealing pepper and cinnamon spices aromas as well. The attack is round and voluminous followed by a surprising fresh and intense velvety tannins on the mid-palate, finishing with long plum notes.
