Château Les Graves de Viaud – Réserve 2011 – Côtes de Bourg

The nose is aromatic, racy and offers a slight concentration. It reveals notes of violet, wild blackberry and slight notes of cassis associated with discreet hints of wild raspberry (in the background), slight hints of spices, tobacco as well as a subtle hint of truffle and a very discreet hint of Sichuan pepper. The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers a beautiful juiciness, a slight acid frame, a racy minerailty, a good definition, gourmandise, a beautiful dynamism as well as a beautiful suavity. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of juicy blackberry, juicy plum and juicy raspberry associated with hints of small berries as well as slight woody touches, truffle, chocolate and an imperceptible hint of violet. Tannins are fine and tight. Good length.
