Alto de Cantenac-Brown 2016 – Bordeaux

Alto de Cantenac-Brown 2016 – Bordeaux

The nose is fresh, aromatic and offers a certain straightness/tension. It reveals notes of fresh lemon, slight notes of small fresh citrus/kumquat and discreet hints of mandarin, racy minerality associated with slight hints of fresh white fruits (apple, white peach) as well as slight/delicate hints of flowers (white/exotic flowers). The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers a very beautiful freshness, fat, a beautiful minerality, tension as well as a very beautiful “guideline” (that leads the tasting). In the mouth this wine expresses beautiful notes of ripe citrus (lemon, mandarin/kumquat), white peach and a discreet hint of apple, exotic fruits (pineapple, Quenette) associated with discreet/imperceptible woody hints (in the background) as well as slight notes of flowers. The finish is very delicate. Great success!
