L’Eclat de Valentin 2018 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru

L’Eclat de Valentin 2018 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru

The nose is fruity and offers a small intensity/power and a fine complexity/gourmandize. It reveals notes of fleshy blackberry, violet and small notes of vanilla associated with small touches of strawberry, blueberry, nutmeg as well as very discreet hints of gray pepper, liquorice stick and spices. The palate is fruity, precise, well-balanced and offers juiciness, a good definition, a beautiful fruit as well as a juicy/mineral frame. On the palate this wine expresses notes of juicy blackberry, juicy raspberry and small notes of juicy cassis associated with small touches of juicy blueberry, fine hints of liquorice stick as well as very fine hints of almond and vanilla. Tannins are well-built and structuring. Good length. A very discreet almost saline hint on the finish.
