Châteauneuf-du-Pape

VertdeVin - - Wine Reviews -

The nose is fruity, gour­mand and quite el­e­gant. It re­veals notes of Bi­gar­reau / sour cherry cherry, black­berry and cas­sis as­so­ci­ated with fine touches of gar­rigue, racy min­er­al­ity as well as sub­tle hints of licorice and an im­per­cep­ti­ble hint of black olive. The palate is fruity, well-bal­anced, fat and of­fers a nice min­eral frame, suavity, den­sity, con­cen­tra­tion, a good guide­line, a good struc­ture, a fine acid­ity, a fine unc­tu­os­ity as well as a fine acid­ity (in the back­ground). In the mouth this wine ex­presses notes of crushed cherry, crushed blue­berry and black­berry com­bined with slight hints of jammy red fruits, plum, licorice as well as a sub­tle hint of caramelized wood and choco­late. Tan­nins are well-built. Good length and good per­sis­tence. The fin­ish is slightly pow­er­ful.
