Domaine de L’Aurage 2014  – Castillon Côtes-de-Bordeaux

The nose is gourmand, nicely fruity/aromatic, full and offers elegance as well as a slight complexity. It reveals notes of vanilla and a hint of coconut, blackberry, chocolate associated with discreet toasted hints, ripe strawberry as well as subtle hints of ripe cassis. The palate is fruity, fresh and offers a beautiful juiciness, a beautiful acid frame, a beautiful balance, a beautiful dynamism, roundness, a slight juiciness as well as fat. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of Gariguette strawberry and slight notes of juicy blackberry, cassis associated with a subtle hint of cherry, a toasted touch, almond, chocolate and a woody touch. Tannins are fine and well-built. There is a very discreet hint on salinity on the finish. Tannins are fine, straight and slightly chewy. Good length and persistence.
