Château Haut Colombier 2009 – Blaye Côtes-de-Bordeaux

The nose is fruity, aromatic and quite charming. It reveals notes of black fruits, blackberry, black berries and slight notes of strawberry associated with fine touches of spice, woods as well as a discreet hint of Sichuan pepper and dried blueberries. The palate is fruity, soft, silky, fleshy and offers a good volume, a nice fat, suavity, a fine juiciness, minerality, harmony and a slight / discreet acid frame. On the palate this wine expresses notes of blackberry, fine notes of cassis and a hint of strawberry associated with discreet spicy notes as well as a fine hint of cassis bud. Tannins are fine and well-built. Good length.
