La Mondotte 2008 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru, 1er Grand Cru Classé B

The nose is gourmand, offers richness (but full of balance), a very slight austerity as well as fleshiness. It reveals notes of fleshy blackberry, wild fruits and small notes of cassis, tonka bean, truffle, hazelnut as well as a discreet hint of lily / flowers (in the background). The palate is fruity, well-balanced, fresh, mineral, juiciness, gourmandise, beautifully elegant and offers a small density, a beautiful depthness, a racy minerality, a beautiful finesse as well as a mineral frame. On the palate this wine expresses notes of fleshy / juicy blackberry and small notes of crushed raspberry, cherry, crushed cassis associated with small touches of vanilla, small toasted touches, almond as well as discreet hints of spices. Tannins are fine and slightly firm. Small chew on the finish. Good length.
