Château de Ricaud 2012 – Cadillac Côtes-de-Bordeaux

The nose is aromatic as well as relatively fine and elegant. It reveals notes of blackberry, crushed cassis and flower associated with fine touches of oak as well as avery discreet note of bell-pepper, licorice and a hint of chocolate. The palate is fruity, well-balanced, well defined, straight, elegant, fine and offers a beautiful matter and a small mineral structure. On the palate this wine expresses notes of blackberry, plum and cassis combined with fines notes of crushed raspberry, cherry as well as discreet notes of redcurrant, flowers, toasted oak as well as discreet notes of sweet spices and a slight hint of tobacco. Tannins are fine and well-built. Good length.
