Supple, fresh, levity.
The back label tells explains the name of this estate was thanks to a Frenchman who once owned it. He had spent time in Canada some two hundred years ago and was so taken with it he brought the name home.
The Chateau is located 15 kilometers north of Bordeaux.
I review this wine year after year, and see its vintage variations, the 2016 stands out as one of the best of recent vintages.
Expect a pretty nose; sweet plummy and cassis aromas woven with orange peel, licorice, dried rose petals and baking spice. It is supple and fresh with great levity. It is medium-bodied and balanced with smooth tannins and more than decent length. Delicious.
