Nolandra 2007 – Châteauneuf-du-Pape

Nolandra 2007 – Châteauneuf-du-Pape

The nose is fruity, gourmand, elegant, captivating and offers a beautiful finesse, a beautiful grain as well as a very fine power and a racy minerality. It reveals notes of crushed cassis, fleshy blueberry and small notes of violet, crushed strawberry associated with touches of vanilla, chocolate, spices as well as discreet hints of liquorice, an imperceptible hint of scrubland (in the background) and gray pepper. The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers a good definition, a fine juicy frame, a beautiful finesse / precision, a fine juiciness / freshness, elegance, a very slightly tight grain, complexity as well as fine suavity. On the palate this wine expresses notes of fleshy / juicy blackberry, juicy blueberry and small notes of vanilla, fleshy strawberry associated with small / slight touches of crushed raspberry, crushed cassis as well as fine toasted touches, chocolate, flowers, liquorice and an imperceptible hint of Bourbon vanilla (in the background). Tannins are fine, elegant and very slightly firm. The wine needs to be put in carafe. There is a discreet hint of almond on the aftertaste / persistence. Congratulations !
