Dubourdieu, Pure, Cadillac Côtes de Bordeaux, France 2018
(at Bordeaux, 15 Mar 2023)
Drinking Window: 2025 - 2032
Bright and vibrant nose, forward and generously black fruited but with hints of purple flowers and strawberries, a soft hint of tobacco and dried herbs as well as some caramel/toast scents. Smooth and supple with mouthwatering acidity straight away, really lively but this retains sense of control and coolness. Ripe fruit, with just textured tannins, bouncy so there's nice weight and depth with liquorice and clove that linger on the mid palate. Nice energy and detail with lots of freshness and drinkability while still being structured and concentrated.
