Domaine Clarendon BDX 2017
Colour: Deep Crimson
Nose:A harmonious combination of cassis, chocolate and spring flowers across forrest floor notes, polished wooden furniture, pencil shaving with understated black olive in what is a generous offering demonstrating the Merlot bias in the composition. As the glass evolves the altitude of perfume slowly rises and a bouquet of cedar, roast almond, leather boot and blackcurrant liqueur finely interlace and create something quite unique and sophisticated.
Palate: There is careful attention to detail across this finely polished and creamy smooth palate that evidently reflects the 60% Merlot inclusion. Layers of pure black fruit, earthy olive tapenade and subtle degrees of cigar tobacco, roast almond and baking spice nuance throughout this classical styled composition.
