Château Saint Ahon 2016 – Haut-Médoc, Cru Bourgeois

Château Saint Ahon 2016 – Haut-Médoc, Cru Bourgeois

The nose is fruity, racy, relatively spicy, structured and offers a small power. It reveals notes of cassis, flowers and more slightly wild small berries associated with touches of liquorice, small red fruits as well as discreet hints of spices and a very discreet hint of Cuben pepper. The palate is fruity, well-built, racy and offers a good definition, a very fine firmness, a good minerality (mineral frame), freshness as well as a small suavity. On the palate this wine expresses notes of juicy cassis, fleshy/juicy cherry and more slightly fleshy/juicy raspberry associated with fine touches of flowers, liquorice stick as well as a very discreet hint of toasted/toasted almond (in the background). Good length.
