Florent Garaudet – Les Riottes 2015 – Monthelie, 1er Cru

The nose is fruity and offers concentration, a small power, minerality as well as a very fine richness/intensity. It reveals notes of wild blackberry, fleshy wild raspberry and small notes of blue berries associated with touches of liquorice, cardamom, Cuben pepper as well as fine hints of flowers and a very discreet hint of tea. The palate is fresh, fruity, racy, well-balanced and offers a good definition, a beautiful fresh frame, a beautiful juiciness, a beautiful minerality, gourmandize as well as a good structure. On the palate this wine expresses notes of fleshy/juicy cherry, fleshy/juicy blackberry and small notes of small berries associated with touches of fleshy/juicy plum, graphite, chocolate, toasted as well as discreet hints of cassis bud, zan and a very discreet hint of vanilla (in the background). Tannins are fine and well-built.
