Château Hourtin-Ducasse 2014 – Haut-Médoc – Cru Bourgeois

The nose is aromatic. It reveals notes of cacao, roasted oak and slight notes of blackberry, small wild berries associated with touch of wild berries as well as slight/discreet hints of spices, vanilla and hints of racy minerality. The palate is fruity, fine, sleek, silky and offers roundness, juiciness, a good definition as well as a slight acid frame. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of blackberry, cassis, slight notes of small wild red fruits, wild strawberry associated with a hint of grilled oak as well as a discreet note of colas, zan and a very discreet/imperceptible hint of tobacco. Tannins are fine and well-built. Good length and persistence.
