Clos St Antonin 2016 – Châteauneuf-du-Pape

Clos St Antonin 2016 – Châteauneuf-du-Pape

The nose is aromatic and offers power, elegance, a racy minerality as well as a beautiful finesse of the grain. It reveals notes of blackberry, wild cassis and small notes of black berries, crushed blueberry associated with touches of grove, mocha as well as a very discreet hint of grove / licorice and an imperceptible hint of tobacco blond. The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers a good definition, juiciness, a beautiful suavity, straightness, elegance, balance as well as a small aerial side. On the palate this wine expresses notes of black cherry, blackberry and small notes of plum associated with small touches of elderberry, fleshy raspberry as well as discreet touches of licorice / Zan and spices. Tannins are well-built and a bit mellow. Good length. There is a discreet hint of dark chocolate / cocoa in the background.
