La­lande-de-Pomerol The nose is fruity, racy, aro­matic, slightly pow­er­ful and of­fers a fine con­cen­tra­tion and ele­gance. It re­veals notes of black­berry, wild straw­ber­ries, small berries and fine woody touches as­so­ci­ated with a sub­tle hint of pep­per, co­coa as well as fine touches of sweet spices and a slight hint of blue flow­ers. The palate is fruity / aro­matic, well-bal­anced, min­eral, finely gour­mande and of­fers a slight / dis­creet fleshi­ness (in the back­ground), suavity, a fine ten­sion as well as a fine round­ness. In the mouth this wine ex­presses notes of straw­berry, fleshy rasp­berry and small notes of wild black­berry as­so­ci­ated with a sub­tle hint of juicy berries, dis­creet toasted touches / caramelized oak as well as a sub­tle­hint of corn­flower and zan. Tan­nins are sup­ple. Good length. There are an im­per­cep­ti­ble hint of melted choco­late and a dis­creet hint of caramel on the af­ter­taste.

Score : 15.5 Château de Marchesseau 2015
