Clos de l’Oratoire 2016 – Saint Emilion Grand Cru

The nose is fruity, concentrated and offers freshness as well as intensity / density. It reveals notes of fleshy boysenberry, crushed raspberry and small notes of almond / hazelnut, touches of cassis associated with discreet hints of tonka bean, spices and oak. The palate is fruity, mineral, well-balanced and offers a good definition, a slight mineral frame, a beautiful finesse, suavity, a small fat, a good dimension (width, depthness) as well as an acidulous frame. On the palate this wine expresses notes of fresh / juicy blackberry and small notes of cassis, wild raspberry, small crunchy berries associated with fine touches of tonka bean, wood, caramelization and spices. Tannins are fine and a bit firm. Small racy / saline minerality on the finish.
