Domaine M. Boutin 2016 – Rasteau

The nose is aromatic, powerful, a bit gourmand and offers finesse. It reveals notes of vanilla, crushed red berries and crushed raspberry combined with small small notes of Sichuan pepper, flowers, spices as well as touches of camphor and cassis. The palate is fruity, suave, juicy, well-balanced, gourmande, precise and offers a beautiful definition, minerality, a very slight creaminess / unctuosity, a small tension, roundness, fat as well as an acid frame. On the palate this wine expresses notes of red berries and crunchy cherry associated with small notes of cassis, crunchy berries as well as touches of vanilla, flowers and chocolate. Tannins are fine and (very) slightly dusty.
