Quintessence Château Blaignan 2016 – Médoc

Quintessence Château Blaignan 2016 – Médoc

The nose is fruity, fresh, finely spicy and offers freshness as well as a fine intensity. It reveals notes of cassis, wild raspberry and more slightly ripe wild blackberry associated with touches of cassis, liquorice stick as well as fine hints of toasted, chocolate, hazelnut and a very discreet hint of vanilla. The palate is fruity, fresh, mineral (racy minerality), tight and offers fat, a good guideline as well as a fine acidulous frame. On the palate this wine expresses notes of fleshy/juicy blackberry, fleshy/juicy raspberry and more slightly fleshy/juicy cassis associated with touches of fleshy/juicy cherry, fine hints of flowers, toasted, chocolate/tonka bean as well as a discreet hint of hazelnut and almond. Tannins are well-built. Good length.
