Domaine Simon Blanchard – Guitard 2018 – Montagne Saint-Emilion

The nose is finely tight and offers a fine grain as well as a small intensity. It reveals notes of pulpy wild cassis, bright wild blackberry, small notes of strawberry associated with touches of griotte, cornflower, spices, flowers as well as a very discreet hint of green cardamom, pepper, sweet spices/truffle and Badiane. The palate is fresh, mineral, well-balanced and offers a mineral frame, tension and a certain density. On the palate this wine expresses notes of pulpy/juicy blackberry, fleshy/juicy cassis, small notes of bright wild raspberry associated with small touches of violet, fresh lily as well as small touches of crunchy/fresh violet plum, fine hints of fresh cornflower, fresh lily, nutmeg, toasted and chocolate. Good length. Tannins are well-built. A subtle salinity/sapidity and gourmandize in the finish.
