Château Bellefont-Belcier 2018 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru

The nose is fruity, racy and offers power, a good structure as well as juiciness/crunchiness. It reveals notes of juicy/ripe cassis, juicy/ripe blackberry and small notes of wild small blue berries associated with fine touches of crunchy/juicy raspberry, flowers as well as discreet hints of nutmeg and cardamom. The palate is fruity, well-balanced, precise and offers a good definition, tension, complexity, a good freshness, gourmandize, a beautiful material, a small fleshiness, a mineral/fresh frame as well as straightness. This wine multi-layers requiers attention and work in the glass. On the palate this wine expresses notes of juicy blackberry, juicy/ripe cherry and small notes of cassis associated with touches of fleshy/ripe cherry and small notes of cassis associated with touches of fleshy/ripe raspberry as well as touches of blue fruits, flowers, liquorice stick, very discreet hints of graphit ad an imperceptible hint of toasted/caramelized. Tannins are elegant and bring a fine chew.
