Château Bouscassé – Vieilles Vignes 2007 – Madiran

The nose is aromatic, fine and elegant. The wine needs time to open. It reveals notes of blueberry, underbrush and dried flowers associated with discreet notes of spice, cigar and a hint of Sichuan pepper. The palate is fruity, mineral, fresh, a bit fleshy, relatively gourmande and offers a small mineral frame, a fine acidity, fat as well as a nice and silky matter. On the palate this wine expresses notes of blackberry, jelly plum and fine notes of blueberry associated with a hint of raspberry, cassis, red berries as well as discreet notes ot toasted oak / sweet spices. There is a very fine saline hint on the finish / aftertaste. Tannins are fine, supple and slightly dry. The finish is suave. Good length and persistence.
