Château Laffitte Carcasset 2015 – Saint-Estèphe – Cru Bourgeois

The nose is fruity, racy and offers a slight intensity as well as elegance. It reveals notes of cassis, blackberry and wild strawberry combined with a hint of crushed berries and touches of gray pepper and subtle / discreet hints of caramelized oak. The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers a nice mineral frame, juiciness, a beautiful suavity, gourmandise, a good definition, a nice freshness, a slight acidity, a slight tension as well as a beautiful harmony. On the palate this wine expresses notes of fleshy / juicy cassis, crushed redcurrant and fleshy / juicy raspberry associated with touches of toasted oak, mocha and a subtle hint of roasting (in the background) and spices / sweet spices. Tannins are supple and offers a beautiful finesse. The finish is slightly powerful. A great success!
