Château Laroze  2016 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classé

The nose is fruity, fresh, relatively gourmand and offers a nice maturity. It reveals notes of crushed blackberry, fresh/ripe cassis and slight notes of small fruits associated with hints of wood/cacao as well as a very discreet hint of licorice. The palate is fruity, juicy, fresh, mineral and offers a nice balance, a beautiful acid frame, a beautiful tension as well as fat and suavity. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of fresh/ripe blackberry, raspberry and slight notes of small berries associated with a discreet hint of fresh cassis as well as a hint of licorice and slight touches of dark chocolate. Tannins are well-built. Good length and persistence. There is a hint of Timut pepper on the persistence.
