Clos Gautier – Clos du Château 2013
Côtes de Provence
The nose is fruity, finely powerful and offers fine juiciness and a fine concentration. It reveals notes of fleshy cassis, crushed blueberry and strawberry associated with touches of garrigue, violet, colas as well as subtle touches of caramelized oak and an imperceptible hint of tobacco. The palate is fruity, well-balanced, finely gourmande and offers a beautiful mineral frame, a fine juiciness, suavity, elegance, freshness, a small aerial side as well as a good definition. On the palate, this wine expresses notes of juicy cassis, juicy black cherry and small notes of juicy blueberry associated with fine touches of crushed strawberry, colas / licorice, black olive, grilled oak and a subtle hint mocha and cardamom / tobacco. Tannins are slightly chewy. Good length. The aftertaste is slightly powerful.
