Château La Garde 2015 – Pessac-Léognan

Château La Garde 2015 – Pessac-Léognan

The nose is fruity and offers a fine minerality and a fine concentration. It reveals notes of cassis, blackberry and strawberry combined with small touches of berries, spices, zan and a very discreet hint of Sichuan pepper. The palate is fruity, fresh, mineral, well-balanced, racy and offers a (very) slight unctuosity, tension, a small gourmandise, a fine concentration, a fine acid frame as well as a good guideline. On the palate this wine expresses notes of blackberry, cassis and small notes of black cherry associated with small touches of red berries, licorice, chocolate, toasted oak as well as discreet hints of sweet spices on the finish. Tannins are fine and a bit firm. Good length. There is a hint of caramelization on the persistence.
