Clos Saint Denis, Domaine Coquard Loison-Fleurot 2016

Tasting Notes

There are three barrels of the 2016 Clos Saint-Denis Grand Cru, two of them new, coming from the domaine’s 0.17 hectares of vines planted in 1936. It has a spellbinding bouquet with pure macerated red cherries, hints of violet and crushed white flowers, building all the time with aeration while maintaining impeccable delineation. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, actually quite Clos de la Roche in style, sensual and rounded with an exquisite, poised finish tinged with blue fruit that lingers on and on and on. This is a stunning Clos Saint-Denis.
