"This offers violets and some aged meat, as well as ripe purple fruit, leading to a palate that has a smooth and velvety feel and plenty of tannin crunch. A blend of merlot, cabernet sauvignon and petit verdot. Drink or hold."

"The 2016 Poitevin has a crisp, focused bouquet with pure blackberry and boysenberry notes tinged with crushed stone. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, quite feminine in style with a silky smooth, black cherry and blueberry finish that caresses the senses. This is a well-crafted, utterly delicious Médoc. Tasted at the Oenoconseil tasting room in Bordeaux."
