Château Gontier 2012 – Blaye Côtes-de-Bordeaux

The nose is fruity, well structured and a bit powerful / concentrated. It reveals notes of cassis bud associated with a discreet hint of raspberry jam, fine spicy notes as well as a discreet hint of flowers / violets and vanilla oak. The palate is fruity, fine, well-balanced and offers minerality, a good definition, a silky matter and a racy minerality. On the palate this wine expresses notes of juicy blackberry, cassis and fine notes of wild strawberry, raspberry associated with woody touches and sweet spices. There is a slight salinity in the mouth. Tannins are fine and slightly firm. Good length.
