Clos Marsalette 2017 – Pessac-Leognan

Clos Marsalette 2017 – Pessac-Leognan

The nose is fresh, aromatic and gourmand. It reveals notes of fleshy white fruits and ripe lemon associated with small notes of quenette/passion fruit, William pear as well as subtle/discreet touches of gravels (Graves)/terroir (in the background), flowers and green almond (in the background). The palate is fruity, fresh, well-balanced and offers a beautiful tension, a very beautiful acid frame/white fruits, a very fine unctuosity, a racy minerality, a beautiful fat, precision as well as tension. On the palate this wine expresses notes of fleshy peach, fleshy apple and more slightly exotic fruits (quenette, passion fruit) associated with touches of pear, fine hints of ripe citrus in the background (mandarin, lemon) as well as very fine touches of toasted and ripe almond (in the background). Good length.
