Château Lafoux – Auguste 2019

Château Lafoux – Auguste 2019

The color of this wine is deep red with purple reflections. The first nose is elegant and powerful. We have small black wild fruits like blackberry but also some redcurrant. It’s delicate. With air, the nose becomes more complex with floral notes of cornflower and camphor. You can really feel the terroir with impressions of garrigues ! Hints of hazelnuts and vanilla appear with tea and bergamot. Nice introduction. The mouth is fruity and fresh. There are flavors of the nose : crunchy black and red fruits (cherry, blackberry) but also hint of bergamot. Then new aromas emerge in the mid-palate such as tonka bean, toast, zan (liquorice) and flowers like thyme flower and violet. They accompany precise, intense and elegant tannins which are blending into a long finish. This wine is concentrated, delicate with a nice balance.
