Alain Gras – Très Vieilles Vignes 2016 – Auxey-Duresses 

The nose is fruity, racy and offers a slight intensity / concentration. It reveals notes of blackberry, plum and small notes of cassis associated with small touches of black cherry, hints of red fruits, graphite / racy minerality as well as discreet hints of Zan, cardamom and spices. The mouth is juicy, slight and offers minerality, a beautiful / fine acidulous frame, dynamism as well as a racy minerality. On the palate this wine expresses notes of black cherry, black plum and small notes of fleshy cassis associated with small touches of fleshy raspberry, blueberry as well as very discreet hints of racy minerality, cardamom, Zan and an imperceptible hint of blond tobacco (in the background). Tannins are fine and well-built. Good juiciness.
