Château Pontet-Barrail 2018 – Médoc

The nose is fruity and offers freshness, concentration and a fine gourmandize. It reveals notes of ripe cassis, ripe raspberry and small notes of griotte, ripe wild strawberry associated with small touches of violet, vanilla as well as a very discreet hint of racy minerality. The palate is fruity and offers juiciness, a small freshness, gourmandize, a mineral frame as well as a fine tension. On the palate this wine expresses notes of ripe/acidulous wild strawberry, ripe/acidulous cassis and small notes of griotte associated with fine hints of small red berries, flowers as well as very discreet hints of vanilla (in the background). An imperceptible hint of toasted on the finish. Gourmandize and an imperceptible hint of grilled bread on the aftertaste.
