Amiral de Beychevelle 2017 – Saint-Julien

The nose is fresh, finely tight and offers intensity as well as freshness. It reveals notes of fresh wild berries, fresh cassis and small notes of crunchy/fresh raspberry associated with fine hints of spices as well as very discreet hints of peony and an imperceptible hint of pepper (in the background). The palate is fresh, fruity, well-balanced and offers a good definition, juiciness, gourmandize, tension, suavity as well as a mineral frame. On the palate this wine expresses notes of juicy blackberry, juicy strawberry and small notes of crushed redcurrant associated with small touches of flowers (peony, violet), a very discreet varietal hint as well as subtle hints of cardamom. A very fine firmnes on the finish.
