Château La Valade 2015 – Fronsac

Château La Valade 2015 – Fronsac

The nose is aromatic, concentrated, relatively powerful and offers a very slight dusty side. It reveals notes of blackberry, cassis and slight hints of plum associated with a subtle touch of red berries as well as discreet touches of wood, spices and an imperceptible hint of pepper. The palate is fruity, well-balanced, elegant and offers juiciness, an acid frame, a beautiful suavity, unctuosity, a nice definition, tension and an aerial side. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of fleshy blackberry, fleshy cassis and slight notes of juicy plum associated with touches of fleshy Gariguette strawberry, toasted oak, vanilla as well as a subtle hint of caramelization and an imperceptible hint of flowers. Good length.
