Château Tronquoy-Lalande 2018 – Saint-Estèphe

The nose is elegant, fine, racy and offers a beautiful fruit as well as a racy minerality, freshness and a certain energy/intensity. It reveals notes of fleshy/pulpy blackberry, strawberry and small notes of violet associated with touches of pulpy cherry as well as hints of violet, a racy minerality, a discreet hint of liquorice and toasted hazelnut. The palate is fruity, well-balanced, actually finely tight and offers straightness, tension, fleshiness, a beautiful grain as well as gourmandize, a small unctuosity, deepness, silkiness, energy as well as a fine acidulous frame. On the palate this wine expresses notes of pulpy/fleshy blackberry, cherry and small notes of violet associated with touches of raspberry as well as hints of blueberry, pulpy strawberry, cornflower as well as hints of chocolate, caramelization, discreet hints of toasted/caramelization and a subtle hint of badiane (in the background). Good length. A small chew in the finish/persistence.
