Château d’Arcole 2016 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru 

Château d’Arcole 2016 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru 

The nose offers a slight intensity, a slight concentration as well as elegance. It reveals notes of fresh cassis / blackberry and small notes of blueberry, crushed gariguette strawberry associated with touches of licorice, cornflowers as well as discreet hints of nutmeg, sweet spices and an imperceptible hint of colas. The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers gourmandise, juiciness, a good definition, precision, straightness, tension, minerality, a mineral frame as well as dynamism. On the palate this wine expresses notes of fleshy cassis and ripe / crushed wild berries associated with small notes of blue fruits, black cherry / wild strawberry as well as hints of flowers, licorice and colas. Tannins are well-built and structuring.
