Chateau Couronneau - 2016
Selected fruit from strictly controlled yields this fine 100% Merlot Bordeaux Supérieur is a glowing example of what can be achieved with dedication, focus, biodynamics AND a great vintage! Aged in large, old oak barrels to give a subtle vanilla and cream flavour. Crammed full of blackberry and damson with a nuance of florality towards the finale. Sumptuous fruit with enough freshness to ensure balance. Easy, relaxed and creamy in texture. A fine advert for affordable claret in the modern idiom!
