Fleur de Thénac Rouge, Château Thénac 2016

Tasting Notes

Deep ruby purple in colour. The nose is fleshy, ripe with brambly fruit, layered with a touch of smoke and cedar. The palate has equal flesh and grip, bringing depth to the dark fruited core. The tannins are ripe and softening, but there is a brightness and savoury tone thanks to the chalky texture. Roasted cherries and plums mingle with rich cassis on a long and pure finish. Another excellent Fleur de Thenac. Drink over the next 8 years.
