Château  Tronquoy-Lalande 2016 – Saint-Estèphe 

The nose is aromatic, elegant, racy and offers a fine power/complexity. It reveals notes of cassis, wild raspberry and small notes of blackberry, small wild red berries associated with touches of liquorice/zan, spices as well as a very discreet hint of Cuben pepper (in the background). The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers a good definition, a good mineral frame, a fine freshness, elegance, finesse, a very fine richness, a beautiful finesse o the grain as well as gourmandize. On the palate this wine expresses notes of blackberry and cassis associated wih small touches of fleshy/juicy red berries, hints of violet as well as discreet hints of spices, zan, tonka bean, caramelization (in the background) and a very discreet hint of almond (in the background). Tannins are wellbuilt.
