Domaine Damiens – Saint-Jean 2015 – Madiran 

The nose is fruity and offers concentration / power, finesse as well as a very slight richness. It reveals notes of blackberry, small wild fruits and small notes of spices, Sichuan pepper, varietal associated with touches of crunchy strawberries, blueberry as well as discreet hints of undergrowth and camphor. The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers juiciness, a good definition, a small tension, an acidulous frame as well as a small suavity. On the palate this wine expresses notes of ripe red berries, cassis and small notes of cherry, flowers associated with a touch of cassis bud, liquorice, blueberries as well as very discreet hints of spices (in the background). Tannins are well-built. Good length.
