Domaine Damiens – Tradition 2016 – Madiran 

The nose is aromatic, and offers a small power, a slight minerality as well as richness. It reveals notes of wild blackberries, crushed small fruits, flowers and small notes of cassis bud, crushed blueberry associated with discreet hints of ripe / crushed wild strawberries, spices as well as slight hints of vanilla, a very discreet hint of Timut pepper and an imperceptible hint of cocoa. The palate is beautifully mineral, fruity, well-balanced, precise, fine, acidulous, well-built and offers a slight suavity, a small juiciness, gourmandise as well as an acidulous frame. On the palate this wine expresses notes of fleshy / juicy raspberry, fleshy / juicy cassis and small notes of small crushed/ripe red berries associated with slight touches of crushed cherries, slight toasted touches as well as very discreet hints of cocoa. Tannins are fine and slightly powdered. Good length. The finish is slightly tight.
