VGS Château Potelle – Riviéra 2017 – Sonoma Coast 

The nose is fruity and offers a beautiful freshness. It reveals notes of fresh redcurrants, fresh raspberry and small touches of citrus / quince associated with discreet hints of quenette / passion fruits. The palate is fruity, well-balanced, precise, “clean”, elegant and offers a beautiful freshness, a good definition, tension, a slight suavity, a good structure, gourmandise as well as a very slight straightness. On the palate this wine expresses notes of ripe / fresh redcurrants, ripe / fresh cherry and small notes of raspberry associated with touches of exotic fruits, juicy / fresh citrus (mandarin …) as well as discreet hints of almond (in the background). Tannins are fine, elegant and slightly chewy. Good length and good persistence. The finish is quite gourmande.
