Domaine Castel Oualou – Réserve Syrah 2016 – Lirac

The nose is fruity and offers a fine richness as well as concentration. It reveals notes of liquorice, blueberry and strawberry jam combined with hints of black cherries, redcurrants and a very discreet hint of olive and caramelization / chocolate. The palate is mineral, fruity, well-balanced, slightly gourmande and offers a good definition, fat, a mineral frame as well as a good fineness of the grain. On the palate this wine expresses notes of crushed black cherry, crushed blueberry and small notes of wild strawberry, redcurrants associated with small touches of chocolate, liquorice, garrigue / black olive as well as a very discreet hint of nutmeg. Tannins are slightly firm. Good length.
