Château Grand-Barrail La Marzelle Figeac 2016 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru 

The nose is elegant, flowery and offers concentration. It reveals notes of lilac, blackberry and small notes of crushed cassis associated with small touches of ripe red fruits, discreet hints of liquorice, tea as well as an imperceptible hint of sweet spices and gray pepper (in the background). The wine needs to be put in carafe. The palate is fruity, mineral, elegant, well-balanced, very discreetly tight and offers a beautiful definition, a mineral frame, a small suavity, a fine freshness, a very fine tension as well as a good finesse of the grain. On the palate this wine expresses notes of blackberry, black cherry, crushed cassis and small notes of lilac, lily associated with touches of red fruits, liquorice as well as discreet hints of sweet spices, cardamom / tea and an imperceptible hint of mocha (in the background). Tannins are well-built and slightly firm.
