The 2020 Bonalgue has an impressive deep purple, rim-staining colour. The nose is buoyant with uplifting, crushed floral aromas and sweet liquorice tones. The palate retains the florality of the nose, with additional fresh blueberry and cassis fruit flavours and a touch of iron/iodine minerality. It has lovely, sinewy tannins with a slight hint of greenness, moss and undergrowth tones that bring a rewarding freshness along with a good structural firmness on the finish.
