Tasting notes Clos Figueres
Dark cherry colour with violet reflections. Clean and bright wine with an intense high robe. Its dense tears stain the glass.
Clos Figueras 2008 shows high intensity nasal aromas, which gain in expressiveness as it gets aerated. Before swirling the glass, the aromas of fruit, red berries and some hints of ripe black fruit stand out along with some intense toasted notes. Gradually, some deep balsamic and mint notes appear, with light spicy notes, both hot and sweet, on a background with a marked minerality.
