Château Petit Faurie de Soutard 2016 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru, Grand Cru Classé

The nose is aromatic and powerful. It reveals notes of blackberry, vanilla, toasted notes and small notes of strawberry / cassis associated with small hints of menthol licorice, coconut as well as very discreet / small hint of pepper (in the background). The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers a beautiful definition / juiciness, gourmandise, fat, an acid frame, minerality (in the background) as well as freshness. On the palate this wine expresses notes of juicy / crunchy blackberry, juicy raspberry, juicy / ripe red currants associated with small / slight touches of cassis, licorice as well as slight touches of vanilla, toasted woody / almond. Tannins are fine and a bit firm. Good length. The finish is slightly powerful.
