Chateau Faurie de Souchard 2005

Lovely garnet color with violet hints. Scintillating and clear color.
Intensity of berries and red fruits (cherries, blackcurrants, sloes, blueberries) evolving towards mineral (flint) and roasted (mocha) touches. It finishes on a note of spice (cinnamon).
Frank and complex. A suave attack introducing a long body, delicate with mature tannins that seek integration. After aeration, the mouth remains true to the nose, with flavors of ripe raisins, accompanied by notes of very slightly smoked leather. Good balance of taste. The steady finale is fine and woody.
