Clos Badon 2016 – Thunevin – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru

The nose is powerful, aromatic, gourmand, elegant and offers a good freshness, a slight concentration as well as a beautiful power (full of finesse). It reveals notes of crushed blackberry and fresh/ripe wild strawberry associated with discreet hints of toasted oak/cacao as well as slight/imperceptible hints of Timut pepper. After work in the glass (aeration), it appears a very discreet hint of sweet spices. The palate is fruity, juicy, mineral, well-balanced and offers a beautiful mineral frame, a slight tension, a beautiful acidity, roundness, delicacy, gourmandise as well as a beautiful harmony. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of fresh/ripe blackberry and fresh/ripe wild berries associated with slight notes of fresh/ripe red fruits (wild red berries, raspberry), hints toasted oak/cacao as well as a slight hints of coffee and spices. Tannins are well-built. Good length. There is a very discreet hint of hazelnut on the finish.
