Château de Candale 2016 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru

Château de Candale 2016 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru

The nose is fruity, fresh and offers a slight gourmandise/richness as well as a beautiful freshness and a slight concentration. It reveals beautiful notes of fresh/ripe cassis and slight notes of fresh/ripe raspberry, blackberry associated with slight hints of licorice as well as discreet hints of chocolate and slight/very discreet hints of sweet spices. The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers a beautiful freshness, a slight minerality, a fine unctuosity, fat as well as a beautiful aerial/juicy side. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of fresh blackberry, cassis and slight notes of fresh raspberry/red berries associated with a discreet note of melted dark chocolate as well as a discreet hint of salinity (on the finish) and a very discreet toasted/caramelized hint. Tannins are fine and well-built. Good length.
