Château La Commanderie 2016 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classé

The nose is fruity, gourmand, elegant and offers a beautiful maturity as well as a slight richness/powerful. It reveals notes of fresh blackberry, ripe/fresh wild strawberry and ripe/fresh cassis associated with slight woody notes, slight notes of dark chocolate as well as a hint of Tonka bean and a discreet/imperceptible hint of pepper licorice. The palate is fruity, juicy, nicely balanced, slightly tight, silky and offers a very beautiful freshness, an acid frame as well as tension. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of fresh/ripe blackberry, fresh/ripe strawberry and slight notes of small wild fruits, chocolate and toasted/caramelized oak. Tannins are fine, elegant and polished. Good length. There are very slight notes of dark chocolate on the finish/persistence.
