Château Le Bon Pasteur 2017 – Pomerol

The nose is fruity, elegant, fine, racy, slightly tight and offers a fine racy minerality (in the background). It reveals notes of ripe cassis and fleshy wild blackberry associated with small notes of blue fruits, small fleshy red fruits as well as fine touches of cornflower, zan and vanilla. The palate is fruity, well-balanced, elegant, well-built and offers a good definition, freshness, a fine acid fram, a fine racy minerality as well as a beautiful grain. On the palate this wine expresses notes of black cherry, cassis/black berries and small notes of liquorice, fleshy strawberry associated with fine/discreet hints of cornflower (in the background), fine touches of toasted/caramelized oak as well as a very discreet hint of tea/bulb (in the background). Tannins are fine and very slightly firm. There is a hint of cocoa bitter and chocolate on the finish. Beautiful grain slightly powdered on the finish.
