"The nose is damp, like forest bushes, followed by lingering aromas of young red fruit, cocoa, tannins and savoury notes like stone-baked potatoes. On the palate, the acidity and astringency of red currants, the sweetness and freshness of black cherries, once the iron-like body is also well expressed, while the lightness of Béry A is lightly enjoyable. Serving temperature: 12-13°C recommended."

"The appearance is clear, with a raspberry-red color that has a hint of purple. It has a low viscosity and gives a youthful impression. The intensity of the aroma is moderate. It offers the fragrance of fresh raspberries and charming strawberry candy. There is a harmonious presence of violet flowers and a gentle hint of cinnamon. The influence of oak barrels is subtle, contributing to its juiciness. The initial taste is weak and light, with a gentle acidity and smooth, silky tannins. The alcohol volume is low, and the finish is short. It is recommended to serve at a temperature between 15°C and 20°C."
