Château Le Virou – Sublimus (blanc) 2022 – Blaye Côtes-de-Bordeaux

Nice mineral nose, elegant and which offers a certain balanced richness, freshness as well as a racy side. We find notes of pulpy nectarine, lychee and more slightly of flowers, grapefruit associated with touches of fresh verbena as well as hints of almost fresh mandarin as well as a discreet buttery side which coats everything and brings gluttony. The palate is fruity, balanced and offers minerality, freshness, accuracy, tension, a certain purity, a certain finesse as well as creaminess (in freshness). On the palate this wine expresses notes of pulpy lychee, pulpy quénette and more slightly crushed nectarine associated with touches of quince, sweet lemon, hints of toasted hazelnut as well as a subtle hint of flint and a discreet hint of vanilla. Good length. Presence of a very discreet, almost toasted hint on the persistence.
