Château La Couspaude 2008 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru, Grand Cru Classé

The nose is fruity, well-built and offers elegance / precision. It reveals notes of blackberry, cassis and small notes of wild small fruits associated with slight touches of crushed strawberry, vanilla, toasted as well as discreet hints of cardamom and pepper. The palate is fruity, well-balanced, silky and offers a good definition, suavity, softness, gourmandise, a very slightly tight grain as well as a slight acidulous frame (in the background). On the palate this wine expresses notes of blackberry, crushed cassis and small notes of small wild berries, violet / lilac associated with small touches of cardamom, tabaco, Zan as well as discreet hints of spices and nutmeg. Good length. There is a discreet hint of vanilla on the finish / persistence.
