Chateau Lagrange Saint-Julien 2016, Bordeaux, France

Weather conditions: “The rainy spring weather encouraged the budburst although we cannot say this was an early vintage. The flowering took place the driest week of the spring. And 2016 was one of the hottest and driest summers ever.” Picking dates: Late and long harvest from the 3rd of October until the 24th of October (21 days). Blending: The blending consists of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Merlot, 6% of Petit-Verdot. Tasting: Dark and deep with purple tint. Black cherry, black currant, liquorice and black pepper on the nose. Full-bodied, freshness with menthol, round, powerful and long finish. Enjoyable already this exceptional 2016 is able to age long time due to its silky tannins.
