La Mondotte 2016 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru, 1er Grand Cru Classé B

The nose is fruity, elegant and offers a fine intensity as well as richness (but full of elegance). It reveals notes of blackberry and ripe wild strawberry associated with touches of caramelization, crunchy wild red fruits as well as discreet hints of hazelnuts / almonds and a very discreet hint of Cuben pepper. The palate is fruity, discreetly tight and offers a slight intensity, a beautiful definition, an acidulous frame, elegance, a beautiful suavity, gourmandise as well as a beautiful finesse of the grain. On the palate this wine expresses notes of juicy blackberry, fleshy / juicy raspberry and small notes of blueberry associated with touches of fleshy / juicy red fruits as well as discreet hints of flowers, caramelization, discreet toasted hints, a very discreet hint of chocolate and an imperceptible grilled hint (in the background). Tannins are elegants. Good length.
