Château La Bouade – Cuvée Coccinelle 2017 – Sauternes

The nose is fresh and well-balanced. It reveals notes of ripe white fruits, apple and candied zests associated with a hint of quenette as well as discreet hints of citrus (lemon, kumquat, mandarin) and bee wax. The palate offers a good vivacity, tension, a good balanced, a bit aerial, a small unctuosity, dynamism, a good acidity, a small acid frame, freshness, fat as well as fullness. On the palate this wine expresses notes of candied white fruits associated with small touches of candied lemon, cristallized mandarin, kumquat, candied quenette as well as subtle hint of orange, juicy/fresh green apple (on the finish) and discreet touches of fresh verbena (on the finish). Good length.
