Tour de Ripeau 2016 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru

Tour de Ripeau 2016 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru

The nose is fruity and offers power as well as a small concentration. It reveals notes of cassis, wild blackberry and small black fruits associated with touches of liquorice, raspberry as well as hints of iris, Cuben pepper and spices. The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers a good definition, an acidulous frame, a slight suavity, a good freshness as well as gourmandise. On the palate this wine expresses notes of fresh / juicy blackberry and juicy / fresh cassis associated with small notes of wild raspberry, juicy blueberry, small juicy red berries as well as small touches of chocolate / cocoa, small toasted touches and a discreet hint of spices. A very slight austerity on the finish. Tannins are fine and very slightly grainy. Good length. There are hints of cocoa and an imperceptible hint of flowers / caramelized almond on the persistence.
