Quintessence du Château Blaignan 2016 – Médoc

The nose is fruity, fresh, well-balanced and slightly powerful. It reveals notes of fresh blackberry, lilac/iris and slight notes of fresh/ripe cassis associated with discreet hints of wild strawberry associated with woody hints as well as slight notes of caramelization. The palate is fruity, fresh, juicy, well-balanced, “clean”/precise and offers tension, elegance, a slight unctuosity, a nice definition as well as a slight aerial side. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of fresh/ripe blackberry, fresh/ripe cassis and slight notes of raspberry, red berries associated with a discreet hint of toasted, mocha as well as slight notes of flowers and chocolate. Tannins are fine and well-built. Good length. A beautiful, fresh and well-built wine!
