Coteaux d’Aix-en-Provence

VertdeVin - - Wine Reviews -

The nose is aro­matic, finely gour­mand/rich and finely pow­er­ful/con­cen­trated. It re­veals notes of crème de cas­sis, black­berry and wild berries com­bined with small notes of red fruit (red­cur­rant, rasp­berry jam) as well as touches of gar­rigue, vanilla and caramelized oak. The palate is fruity, well-bal­anced and of­fers min­er­al­ity, a fine suavity, a beau­ti­ful min­eral frame as well as ten­sion. In the mouth this wine ex­presses notes of juicy black­berry, juicy plum and slight notes of cherry as­so­ci­ated with hints of crushed red­cur­rant, black fruits jam as well as touches of caramelized oak, black olive, min­er­al­ity and an im­per­cep­ti­ble hint of gar­rigue / Mediter­ranean for­est floor. Tan­nins are a bit chewy. Good length. The fin­ish is finely gour­mande and of­fers an im­per­cep­ti­ble hint of choco­late.
