Château Cap Léon Veyrin 2016 – Listrac-Médoc, Cru Bourgeois

The  nose is racy and offers a fine power as well as a fine intensity. It reveals notes of wild blackberry, wild strawberry and more slightly cassis associated with touches of racy minerality/graphite, toasted as well as discreet hints of chocolate, vanilla, flowers and a very discreet hint of pepper (in the background). This wine should be decanted. The palate is fruity, well-balanced, racy, finely tight and offers a good definition, a mineral frame, a fine juicinesse/a fine crunchiness, a fine tension, a fine freshness as well as a good structure. On the palate this wine expresses notes of crunchy cassis, crunchy/fresh raspberry and more slightly crunchy/fresh strawberry associated with small touches of fleshy/juicy blackberry, toasted, racy minerality as well as a very discreet hint of sweet spices (in the background).
