Château du Courlat 2016 – Lussac Saint-Emilion

Château du Courlat 2016 – Lussac Saint-Emilion

The nose is fruity and offers a small concentration as well as gourmandise. It reveals notes of Boysenberry, ripe red berries and small notes of flowers (cornflower, lilac) associated with discreet hints of spices, nutmeg, vanilla as well as a very discreet hint of Cuben pepper. The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers a good definition, minerality, freshness, concentration, a small acidulous frame as well as roundness and tension. On the palate this wine expresses notes of blackberry, cassis and small notes of crunchy red berries, wild raspberry associated with a touch of flowers, cherry as well as hints of spices, licorice and Cuben pepper. Tannins are very slightly dry. There is a very discreet hint of coffee on the finish.
