Château Haut-Barrail 2016 – Médoc

Château Haut-Barrail 2016 – Médoc

The nose is fine, relatively powerful and offers a slight concentration. It reveals slight notes of blackberry and cassis associated with slight notes of flowers, red fruits (in the background) as well as very discreet hints of gray pepper. The palate is fruity, juicy, slight, sleek, mineral, well-balanced and offers a  slight tension, a good freshness as well as gourmandise. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of juicy blackberry and fleshy/fresh strawberry associated with slight notes of cassis, small red fruits as well as toasted hints and licorice. Tannins are fine and well-built. Good length and persistence. There is a hint of minerality almost salin on the finish/persistence, and gourmandise on the finish.
