Château Carlmagnus 2014 – Fronsac

Château Carlmagnus 2014 – Fronsac

The nose is fruity and offers a fine intensity, a fine elegance, richness and power. It reveals notes of crushed blackberry, cassis jam, crushed strawberry and a touch of raspberry combined with a very discreet hint of ripe / crushed plum as well as subtle touches of wood, sweet spices and caramelization. The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers a mineral frame (beautiful minerality), a fine juiciness, a good structure, a fine acidity (in the background), suavity and a fine depthness. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of juicy blackberry, crushed cassis, ripe / crushed wild strawberry and ripe raspberry, combined with fine touches of chocolate, caramelized wood and sweet spices. Tannins are well-built, firm and slightly cubic. Good length. There is a fine touch of licorice on the aftertaste / persistence.
