Château Ascension 2017 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru

The nose is fresh and offers a fine concentration. It reveals notes of cassis, red berries and fine touches of racy minerality, subtle hint of bulb as well as discreet hint of toasted, Cuben pepper and a discreet hint of tonka bean. The palate is fresh, fruity, juicy, well-balanced, slightly tight and offers a good definition, an acid fram, dynamism, fat, a fine gourmandize as well as a good structure. On the palate this wine expresses notes of juciy/ripe redcurrant, crunchy strawberry and more slighlty cassis associated with fine touches of black cherry/blueberry, violet as well as hint of zan. Tannins are slightly tight and slightly dry.
