Valmy Dubourdieu-Lange 2014 – Castillon Côtes-de-Bordeaux

The nose offers a certain richness, a slight hardness/straightness as well as a certain power/concentration. It reveals notes of cassis and blackberry associated with a discreet hint of wild fruits, gray pepper as well as a slight minerality and a slight hint of bell pepper. The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers a slight suavity, a slight gourmandise, juiciness, a beautiful/slight fat, slightly tight as well as tension. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of fleshy blackberry, juicy cassis and slight notes of juicy strawberry associated with hints of toasted oak as well as a discreet hint of gray pepper and spices. Tannins are fine, very slightly dry and structured/straight. Good length and persistence. The finish/aftertaste is slightly powerful. There is a very discreet hint of chocolate and caramelization on the aftertaste.
