M. Chapoutier – Eleivera 2014 – Douro

The nose is fruity, structured and offers a small power / concentration. It reveals notes of cassis, small wild berries and small notes of local vegetation / scrubland associated with touches of crunchy strawberry, juicy blueberry, chocolate as well as slight hints of spices, toasted and Sichuan pepper. The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers juiciness, a small straightness, a small tension, fat, minerality as well as an acidulous frame. On the palate this wine expresses notes of fleshy blackberry, fleshy cassis and small notes of fleshy raspberry, fleshy small berries associated with a hint of blueberry, scrubland (laurel, olive), flowers as well as very discreet toasted hints, nutmeg, sweet spices and a very discreet hint of vanilla. Tannins are well-built.
