Château du Rocher 2016 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru

Château du Rocher 2016 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru

The nose is slightly concentrated and fresh. It reveals notes of flowers (violet, cornflower) and slight notes of blackberry, cassis associated with discreet hints of strawberry as well as hints of licorice stick and very discreet hints of Sichuan pepper. The palate is fruity, slightly juicy, well-balanced and offers fat as well as a fresh fruit. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of fresh/ripe blackberry and slight notes of griotte, ripe wild strawberry associated with hints of oak/licorice, chocolate as well as a very discreet note of flowers. Tannins are slightly dry. Good length and aromatic persistence. The finish is quite straight. Nice potential!
