Tasting Notes

RIpe, sweet, floral jammy tones on the nose, burnt/toasted patisserie, a baked fruit pie smell that is so wonderfully alluring about the Ceretto wines to me. Stylish and svelte, this has supreme charm despite being a powerhouse of a wine. Dense but sleek tannins fill the mouth, powdery and slightly metallic, a gorgeous minerality, but also with cola, dark chocolate, raspberries and pink flowers. It's taught and direct, not friendly so much, but so well worked with drive and persistency. Lively and upfront, this is out to charm and it does but in a quiet, compelling direct way. Characterful and delicious. Slate edged finish leaving the salinity. Punchy and piercing the whole way through - just excellent. New to the Place de Bordeaux this year.
