Château Saint-Christophe 2016 – Médoc, Cru Bourgeois

Château Saint-Christophe 2016 – Médoc, Cru Bourgeois

The nose is fruity, racy (marked by Cabernet Sauvignon) and offers a fine power. It reveals notes of cassis, liquorice stick and more slightly ripe small red fruits associated with fine hints of Sichuan pepper, violet, graphite as well as a very discreet hint of vanilla/cardamom. The palate is fresh, fruity, well-balanced, juicy and offers suavity, a beautiful definition, gourmandize, precision as well as finesse. On the palate this wine expresses notes of black cherry, fleshy raspberry and more slightly juicy Boysen berry associated with a fine touch of ripe/crushed red berries as well as fine hints of liquorice, Cuben pepper, tonka bean and Bourbon vanilla. There is a very discreet hint of dried almond on the persistence.
