Domaine Duclaux 2011 – Châteauneuf-du-Pape

Domaine Duclaux 2011 – Châteauneuf-du-Pape

The nose is aromatic and offers a small power as well as a fine intensity. It reveals notes of blackberry and iris associated with fine touches of cassis as well as hints of incense, truffle / undergrowth, tobacco and an imperceptible hint of Sichuan pepper. The palate is fruity, well-balanced, slightly tight and offers a good definition, a fine / beautiful suavity, a beautiful juiciness, roundness, precision as well as elegance. On the palate this wine expresses notes of juicy blackberry, juicy black cherry and small notes of fleshy blackberry, graphite, spices as well as discreet hints of scrubland / roasted thyme, undergrowth / mushroom and a very discreet hint of leather. There is a very discreet hint of coffee on the finish. Tannins are fine and well-built. A beautiful, delicate and suave wine.
