Château Franc La Rose 2008 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru

The nose is fruity and offers a fine power / concentration as well as a beautiful finesse of the grain. It reveals notes of cassis and small notes of pepper, spices associated with touches of black cherry, a touch of ripe red fruits as well as discreet toasted hints, oak, tea, a very discreet hint of cornflowers and nutmeg. The mouth is juicy, fruity, well-balanced and offers a good definition, a beautiful finesse / precision, a good guideline as well as a small acidulous frame. On the palate this wine expresses notes of blackberry, cassis and small notes of wild raspberry, black cherry associated with a hint of flowers, ripe red berries / juicy, a toasted hint as well as very discreet hints of spices and dark chocolate (on the finish). Tannins are elegant.
