Château du Grand Cardinal  2016 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru

Château du Grand Cardinal  2016 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru

The nose is fresh and offers a slight concentration. It reveals notes of fresh cassis and hints of fresh small wild fruits associated with slight notes of flowers, discreet hints of fresh raspberry as well as slight hints of spices. The palate is fruity, fine, fluid, mineral, well-balanced and offers a good definition, tension a nice freshness, a very slight unctuosity as well as a beautiful silky matter. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of fresh/ripe blackberry, cassis and slight notes of raspberry associated with a hint of mocha as well as a discreet hint of coffee. Tannins are fine and polished (cashmere!). Good length.
