Château Croizet-Bages 2016 – Pauillac, Cru Classé

The nose is elegant, fruity and offers a fine power and a fine intensity. It reveals notes of fleshy / crunchy wild strawberries, fleshy / crunchy raspberries and a touch of blackberry combined with touches of cassis, fresh cornflowers and very discreet hints of gray pepper (in the background). The palate is fruity, juicy, well-balanced and offers a good definition, a fine juiciness, straightness as well as a fine acidulous frame. On the palate this wine expresses juicy / acidulous red berries, juicy / acidulous raspberry and small notes of blackberry combined with a hint of cherry, slight hints of liquorice stick as well as a very discreet hint of cardamom and vanilla. Good persistence with hints of almond and coffee.
