Château du Rocher 2016 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru

The nose is fruity, well-built and offers a slight intensity, juiciness as well as precision. It reveals notes of blueberry, blackberry and small notes of wild strawberry associated with small touches of flowers, spices / pepper as well as discreet hints of liquorice and discreet toasted hints / Bourbon vanilla. The palate is fruity, well-balanced, well-built and offers gourmandise, a good definition, a small acidulous frame, a small minerality as well as precision and beautiful purity of the fruit. On the palate this wine expresses notes of fleshy redcurrants, fleshy cassis and small notes of raspberry associated with touches of blackberry, cornflowers, Zan as well as discreet hints of spices, vanilla and a discreet / imperceptible hint of pepper. There is an imperceptible hint of tonka bean on the persistence. Tannins are fine and very slightly firm.
