Chateau Couronneau - 2018
Individually selected mature bunches are crushed,cold-soaked and malolactic fermentation takes place in new oak barrels from the Troncais forest. Rich, toasted and cocoa notes coat a basket of blackberries and plums. The texture on the palate is intense and offers superb concentration with a hint of balsamic.

‘Very good on the nose, some clean fruity aromatics, raspberry and dark cherry, with some clear oak impact also, vanilla and brioche flavours, the sweeter end of the spectrum. The flavours hold through on the palate with a good persistency that doesn’t trail to bitterness as so many can in this vintage. Drink 2013-2020’ Jane Anson, Decanter Magazine November 2013 (2011 vintage)
