There was a medium length and earthy mineral finish to this wine.

Overall

The Château des Déduits Fleurie was not your typical fruit forward wine, although there were some nice fruit flavors. I thought the earthiness was robust enough to carry the experience of this wine. Finish was medium in length, but very rich in terms of earth and minerality. Not one of my favorites, but definitely something that is a good alternative if your wine of choice is unavailable.
