Château Gombaude-Guillot 2016 – Pomerol

Château Gombaude-Guillot 2016 – Pomerol

The nose is elegant, fruity, and offers delicacy, a slight depthness as well as a beautiful finesse of the grain. It reveals notes of fleshy blackberry, small blue fruits and small notes of cassis associated with fine touches of wild raspberry associated with discreet hints of cornflower, discreet toasted hints as well as a very discreet hint of Sichuan pepper and an imperceptible hint of spices. The mouth is juicy, fruity, well-balanced, slightly tight and offers a beautiful definition, delicacy, an acidulous frame, suavity / a small fat as well as precision. On the palate this wine expresses notes of cassis, fleshy / juicy blueberry and small notes of small berries associated with touches of fleshy raspberry, slight / discreet hints of cornflower, iris as well as very discreet hints of Zan and an imperceptible hint of graphite (in background). Tannins are fine, straight and very discreetly firm. Good length and persistence. The finish is quite gourmande.
