Le Petit Cheval 2017 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru

Le Petit Cheval 2017 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru

The nose is fresh, fruity, a bit close and offers a small juiciness as well as a small concentration. It reveals notes of cassis, crushed blackberry and more slightly wild strawberry, ripe wild berries, flowers associated with fine touches of ripe/fleshy red fruits, a hint of bulb as well as subtle touches of gray pepper and sweet spices. The palate is fruity, well-balanced, precise and offers a fine juiciness, a good definition, suavity, fat, a beautiful freshness, tension, dynamism, fullness, finesse as well as a very fine density. On the palate this wine expresses notes of cassis, red berries, lily and more slightly crunchy raspberry, fresh blackberry associated with fine touches of almond, toasted, a subtle hint of cardamom and a very discreet hint of spices. Tannins are fine and well-built. Good length. There is a subtle hint of cocoa on the finish.
