Clos Marsalette 2015 – Pessac-Léognan

Clos Marsalette 2015 – Pessac-Léognan

(48% Merlot, 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Cabernet Franc) The nose is fruity, incisif, relatively powerful and a bit gourmand. It reveals notes of cassis, mineral / flint and small notes of spice, blackberry combined with a hint of plum, red fruit, oak and a discreet touch of tea. The palate is fruity, well-balanced, racy, relatively gourmand, fat and offers juiciness, density and a silky matter. On the palate this wine expresses notes of cassis and blackberry combined with a touch of plum, cocoa / mocha, slight notes of red fruits, a hint of cherry as well as very slight notes of liquorice and a fine note of candy. Tannins are fine, grainy and well-built.
