Château Maillet 2017 – Pomerol

Château Maillet 2017 – Pomerol

The nose is precise, concentrated and slightly tight. It reveals notes of blackberry, crushed cassis and small notes of raspberry associated with touches of Sichuan pepper, spices as well as a hint of blue fruits/cornflower, liquorice and an imperceptible hint of almond (in the background). The palate is fresh, fruity, well-balanced and offers a good definition, tension, a good fullness, a beautiful fat, unctuosity, a fine power as well as a slightly tight grain. On the palate this wine expresses notes of fresh boysenberry, fresh raspberry and crushed fresh redcurrant associated with a touch of juicy blueberry, liquorice, toasted as well as subtle hints of caramelization. Tannins are straight and slightly firm. Good length.
