Château La Vieille Croix 2020, Fronsac
On the nose, fresh, fruity and offers a little crispness as well as some concentration. It reveals notes of fresh blackberry, pulpy blackcurrant and more lightly wild berries combined with hints of licorice, plum/plum blossom, small red berries as well as a hint of nutmeg, pepper and a discreet dusty touch. On the palate, fruity, discreetly tight and offers freshness, concentration, some density as well as freshness, good tannic structure and tension. The wine expresses notes of pulpy/juicy blackberry, tart wild blackcurrant and more lightly tart/fresh red berries with a touch of crisp plum, fresh flowers and fine tonka bean, cardamom, pepper, limestone, a subtle hint of sweet blond tobacco (in the background) and hazelnut. Good length. The tannins are structuring and finely marked.
