Clos des Princes 2022 – Saint Emilion Grand Cru

Clos des Princes 2022 – Saint Emilion Grand Cru

A lovely nose with fresh floral and herbaceous notes (on the first nose), accompanied by a ripe fruity bouquet. The wine expresses aromas of morello cherry, fresh blackcurrant, blueberry, wild strawberry, raspberry coulis, violet, lilac, cherry blossom, peppermint and thyme. There are also delicate spicy (licorice, vanilla, nutmeg) and woody (toasted, toasted almond) notes. On the palate, the wine offers a pleasant silky texture, fine tannins, slightly dry, as well as depth and concentration. It expresses the flavors of ripe red and black fruits (griotte, black plum, blackcurrant, blackberry, strawberry, raspberry coulis), combined with slightly sweet notes of dark chocolate, cinnamon, vanilla and chocolate prunes, and delicate floral (violet, lilac) and herbaceous (menthol, bay leaf) notes. The tannic structure is quite powerful, but refined, with a pleasant texture on the palate, without astringency. The wine has good length and freshness thanks to a good level of acidity. A wine with lots of substance, complexity, good hold and great development potential.
