Château Bonneau 2016 – Haut-Médoc

Château Bonneau 2016 – Haut-Médoc

The nose is fruity, slightly firm and offers a small power. This wine should be decanted. It reveals notes of cassis, blackberry and more slightly wild strawberry associated with a touch of cornflower/violet, graphite as well as fine hints of toasted and a very discreet hint of gray pepper. The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers a good definition, juiciness, a small tenson, a mineral/juicy frame, precision. On the palate this wine expresses notes of fleshy/juicy cassis, juicy small berries and more slightly crushed red berries, fleshy/crushed red cherry associated with fine touches of liquorice, toasted oak/vanilla as well as discreet  varietals hints, cardamom and caramelization. Tannins are structuring. There is a very discreet chew and a hint of crushed almond on the persistence.
