Château Hervé-Laroque 2017 – Fronsac

The nose is fruity, elegant, racy and offers power, freshness, a fine grain as well as a very fine power. It reveals notes of ripe cassis, very ripe blackberry and small notes of black berries associated with touches of raspberry / crushed red berries, cardamom as well as very discreet toasted hints and coffee. The mouth is fresh, fruity, juicy, fine, precise, well-balanced and offers minerality, an acidulous frame, a fine grain as well as a fine tension. On the palate this wine expresses notes of juicy/crunchy/fresh raspberry, juicy/fresh cassis and small notes of juicy/fresh blackberry associated with fine touches of small ripe / juicy red berries, a touch of fresh violet, liquorice, cardamom as well as discreet toasted hints and an imperceptible hint of spices. Tannins are well-built and elegant. Good length. There is an imperceptible saline hint (in the background).
