Le Clos de l’Echauguette 2015 – Blaye Côtes-de-Bordeaux

(Vineyard of the Blaye Citadel – classified UNESCO) The nose is fine, powerful, elegant, fruity, racy and offers a fine structure and a very fine salinity. It reveals notes of cherry and raspberry associated with fine notes of blackberry, strawberry, wild black fruits as well as slight hints of toasted oak, cardamom and a very discreet hint of pepper. The palate is fruity, silky, elegant, finely powerful, quite supple and offers a nice minerality, a nice definition, a nice grain (lace!), a fine depthness, salinity, fat, gourmandise as well as a fine acid frame (in the background). On the palate this wine expresses notes of fleshy Gariguette strawberry, raspberry and slight hints of cherry, juicy black berries combined with fine woody notes, moka / toasted hints and a touch of spices and vanilla. Tannins are fine and well-integrated. Good length.
