Château De France 2012 – Pessac-Léognan

Château De France 2012 – Pessac-Léognan

The nose is fruity, fine and quite gourmand. It reveals notes of blackberry, strawberry, fine notes of cassis cream and touches of undergrowth associated with hint of mocha, spice, licorice as well as a discreet hint of violet and a very discreet hint of bell pepper. The palate is fruity, gourmande, elegant, racy and offers suavity, fat, minerality as well as a tight and silky matter. On the palate this wine expresses notes of raspberry, cherry and fine notes of blackberry associated with touches of cassis, wild strawberry, fine notes of undergrowth, liquorice as well as a hint of bell pepper and oak. Tannins are fine, well built and very slightly firm. Good length and persistence. The finish is gourmande and suave.
