About

93

Impressive wet-stone and dark-berry aromas here, as well as some purple flowers. The palate has a very juicy, supple and fleshy array of ripe plums, blueberries and cassis, cast amid fine, long and fresh tannins. Try from 2022.

From a vineyard not far from La Lagune, the 2016 Château D'Agassac is another outstanding wine from the team of Derenoncourt. Lots of dark fruits (black cherries, cassis) and cedar emerge from this medium to full-bodied effort that’s layered, has building tannins, and rock-solid concentration. The Haut-Médoc is a treasure trove of fabulous values in 2016 and this is a beauty. I’d be happy to drink bottles over the coming 15 years or so.

Product Description:

It is the archetype of the modern Medoc both structured and powerful but also balanced, fruity and with tannins without aggressive astringency. Carved for the guard, it will also delight lovers of middle-aged wines who are in love with fruit, matter and balance. It is one of the best-rated and most awarded wines in Haut-Médoc. - Chateau
