L’Aurage 2020 – Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux

L’Aurage 2020 – Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux

The nose is aromatic and offers elegance, some power, fine grain and depth. There are notes of ripe blackcurrant, violet and slightly camphor combined with hints of juicy/pulpy cherry, smoke, fresh pepper, fresh nutmeg and a discreet hint of mocha. The palate is nicely acidic, fruity and offers accuracy, acidity, gourmandise, good ripeness and a nice energy. On the palate this wine expresses juicy/pulpy blackberry, fresh/crisp blackcurrant and more slightly roasted raspberry notes combined with a touch of pulpy strawberry, violet, tonka bean, a hint of sappy, liquorice, spice and a touch of smoke and camphor. Good length. Lovely polished and mellow tannins. A subtle hint of saffron (in its flowery side). Fine chewiness on the finish/persistence.
