Château Vieux Maillet 2018 – Pomerol

The nose is fresh, flowery, fruity, elegant and racy. It reveals notes of cornflower, fresh/fleshy raspberry and small notes of juicy/fresh red fruits associated with small touches of violet as well as discreet hints of liquorice. The palate is fruity, well-balanced, racy and offers a good definition, gourmandize, precision, an acidulous frame, a fine richness/concentration, a fine firmness, a fine fleshiness/pulpiness as well as a racy minerality. On the palate this wine expresses notes of fleshy/juicy/fresh raspberry, fresh/juicy blackberry and small notes of cassis associated with small touches of juicy/fresh blue fruits, hints of flowers as well as discreet hints of vanilla, liquorice and a subtle hint of toasted. Tannins are elegant and well-built. Good length. There are hints of vanilla and a very discreet hint of caramelization on the persistence.
