Château de Gironville 2016 – Haut-Médoc, Cru Bourgeois

The nose offers a small freshness as well as a small concentration. This wine should be decanted. It reveals notes of blackberry, Gariguette strawberry and more slightly violet associated with discreet hints of zan, spices and a very discreet hint of nutmeg. THe palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers a good freshness, crunchiness, a fine tension as well as a fine acidulous frame. On the palate this wine expresses notes of crunchy raspberry and juicy/crunchy cassis associated with small notes of cherry, crushed small red berries as well as fine touches of flowers, zan and very discreet hints of racy minerality. Tannins are well-built. There is an imperceptible hint of almond and vanilla on the finish.
