Quartet de Château Ricaud 2012 – Blaye

The nose is fruity, relatively aromatic, relatively full and slightly powerful. It reveals notes of blackberry, cassis and small wild berries associated with a discreet touch of red fruit as well as a hint of laurel, graphite and oak. The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers a fine juiciness and a fine racy minerality. On the palate this wine expresses notes of juicy blackberry and wild berries associated with discreet notes of cassis, cherry, strawberry, hints of cassis bud as well as discreet notes of toasted oak and discreet touch of vanilla. Tannins are fine and well-built. Good length.
