François d’Allaines 2016 – Santenay

The nose is fruity and offers crunchiness as well as a very fine richness/concentration. It reveals notes of black cherry, wild berries and small notes of raspberry associated with touches of small blue fruits as well as discreet hints of zan, pepper and a very discreet hint of lily (in the background). The palate is fresh, well-balanced and offers minerality, juiciness, a good guideline, energy, deepness, a very fine straightness as well as a juicy/acidulous frame. On the palate this wine expresses notes of fleshy/juicy cherry, fleshy/juicy plum and small notes of fleshy/juicy blackberry associated with touches of small crunchy/fresh small berries, fine hints of flowers (lily, cornflower, bulb) as well as very discreet hints of zan, oak, graphite and an imperceptible hint of coffee (in the background). Tannins are structuring.
