VINTAGE 2014 TASTING NOTES FROM 20/02/2017 – REF.A
Limpid and brilliant wine with pale golden colour. The first nose is complex and penetrating with both floral freshness and fine oakiness. On aeration the aromatic ensemble is released with great finesse. The bouquet is very persistent.
We find tension and freshness in the mouth along with impressive density. The finish is both elegant and mineral, yet with a floral touch.
The length on the palate is impressive. A great vintage for Château Grenouilles.
