Baron de Montfaucon 2016 – Châteauneuf-du-Pape

The nose offers notes of blackberry, small wild berries, flowers (violet, iris) associated with small touches of wild strawberry, slight touches of Zan, gray pepper as well as a subtle touch of sweet spices, oak / toasted hint and an imperceptible hint of cinnamon. The palate is fruity, well-balanced, juicy, gourmande and offers suavity, a small freshness, a very slightly tight grain, a slight straightness as well as precision. On the palate this wine expresses notes of black cherry, blackberry, small black berries and small notes of sour cherry associated with small touches of wild strawberry, flowers as well as discreet hints of spices / Zan. Tannins are fine, a bit tight and dry. Good length. There are a very discreet hint of cocoa and flowers / iris on the persistence.
