Arnoux & Fils, Vieux Clocher – Nobles Terrasses 2018 – Gigondas

The nose is fruity, aromatic, racy and offers power, a small concentration as well as a small deepness. It reveals notes of wild cassis, wild blackberry and small notes of small wild blue fruits associated with fine touches of cornflower, violet, hints of ripe blueberry as well as discreet hints of garrigue/thyme, olive and a subtle hint of pepper. The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers gourmandize, a fine unctuosity/cremosity, a fine/very discreetly tight grain. On the palate this wine expresses notes of fleshy/crushed cassis, crushed blackberry, small notes of very ripe wild blueberry associated with touches of violet, garrigue/olive tree as well as a subtle hint of chocolate and grilled. Tannins are well-buitl and structuring. Discreet hints of bitterness of liquorice/chocolate and gourmandize on the finish/persistence.
