Château Villemaurine  2016 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classé

The nose is fine, fresh, aromatic and offers finesse as well as a delicate power. It reveals notes of crushed fresh blackberry and slight notes of fresh/ripe strawberry associated with slight notes of dark chocolate, a hint of roasting as well as a very discreet hint of plum and slight toasted hints. The palate is fruity, juicy, well-balanced and offers a nice minerality, an acid frame, tension, a beautiful freshness, harmony as well as suavity. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of fresh blackberry and fresh/ripe cassis associated with slight hints of raspberry, fresh small fruits, dark chocolate/cacao as well as a hint of caramelization, coffee and a very discreet hint of vanilla. Tannins are well-built. Good length.
