What an exceptional success! This magnificent Saint-Emilion Grand Cru produced by Catherine Nouvel perfectly illustrates the success of the 2016 vintage in Bordeaux. Catherine has been working in organic farming for 10 years now and the wines which, in the past, were very extracted and somewhat rustic have become charming and shimmering. The age of the vineyard (50 years on average) probably explains in large part the great quality of this wine.
The tannins are soft, velvety and tasty. The fruity expression (small red berries, blackcurrant, blackberry) is delicious with a slight pastry side (hint of milk caramel and fresh cream).
The mouth is perfectly harmonious with first a nice attack on the palate then a superb fat, without excess, in the middle of the mouth and a nice finish all in fruit. The wine is delicious right now and will age without problems at least 10 to 12 years. It's a pure treat.
