Château Haut Grelot – Cuvée Sélection 2015 – Blaye Côtes-de-Bordeaux

The nose is fruity, aromatic and relatively elegant. It reveals notes of white fruits (apple, Williams pear) associated with discreet notes of quince, lemon and a fine hint of toasted oak. The palate is fine and offers a nice fat (probably due to lees bâtonnage), a fine acid frame, harmony, a nice minerality, a fine acide frame and an unctuous matter. On the palate this wine expresses notes of crushed pear and quince associated with fine notes of Williams pear, exotic fruits as well as small notes of lemon, citrus zest, quenette and a very discreet hint of oak. Good length.
