Château Capet-Guillier 2017 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru

Château Capet-Guillier 2017 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru

The nose is fruity, slightly tight and offers a fine concentration. It reveals notes of fresh cassis and fresh small red fruits associated with fine touches of flowers (violet, rose) as well as fine touches of spices and a very discreet hint of Cuben pepper. The palate is mineral, well-balanced and offers a beautiful tension, a fine unctuosity as well as a beautiful freshness. On the palate this wine expresses notes of fleshy blackberry, crushed raspberry and more slightly chocolate, ripe/crushed small red fruits associated with subtle touches of vanilla, a discreet hint of flowers (in the background) as well as discreet hints of mild tobacco. Tannins are fine and chewy. Good length. Fine chews on the finish. There is a very discreet hint of crushed almond on the finish/persistence.
