Full and dense red with currant, berry and chocolate character. Round and juicy tannins. Savory finish. Pretty young wine. Better than the 2015.
This is all silky elegance, falling over itself to welcome you in. 2016 is such a good vintage for rediscovering those little, overlooked estates, and this is lovely, with enveloping tannins and touches of rusticity that remind you there are still estates working in a traditional manner without extreme selection, even in Pauillac. Very good. Drinking Window 2023 - 2038
