Château Villars 2018 – Fronsac

Château Villars 2018 – Fronsac

The nose is fruity and offers concentration as well as power. It reveals nots of blackberry, flowers (iris, cornflower) and small notes of wild red fruits associated with fine touches of spices. The palate is fruity, mineral, well-balanced, well-built and offers tension, a good definition, a fine juicy frame. On the palate this wine expresses notes of fleshy/juicy blackberry, juicy/fleshy cassis and more slightly cornflower/peony associated with fine touches of small wild red fruits as wel as discreet hints of zan, cardamom and a very discreet hint of tonka bean. Tannins are slightly firm. Good length. There are hints of cocoa, varietals as well as a discreet bitterness on the finish.
