Château de Rouillac 2018 – Pessac-Léognan

The nose is fruity, elegant, racy and offers a racy minerality, freshness as well as a good definition of the fruit. It reveals notes of Boysen berry, black cherry, small notes of raspberry associated with touches of small bright black fruits, graphite/racy minerality as well as fine hints of violet, nutmeg and a discreet hint of cocoa. The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers minerality, a beautiful acidulous frame, a beautiful definition, an aromatic purity as well as a beautiful finesse of the grain, precision, a controlled power and a small stretchy side. On the palate this wine expresses notes of bright cherry, crunchy raspberry, small notes of juicy/fresh violet plum associated with touches of acidulous/juicy cassis as well as fine hints of violet/fresh lilac, a racy minerality as well as small hints of cocoa, toasted, a subtle hint of fresh hazelnut and an imperceptible hint of black tea (in the background). Tannins are elegant, precise and structuring. A persistence on a fine hint of cocoa.
