2016 are wines that represent well their terroir with precision; articulate – expressing their commune. Tasting these en primeur two years ago, the wines of Palmer, Mouton, Leoville las Cases and Cos d'Estournel were singing full throated – to mention a few. This is the theme of 2016, in particular the Cabernet. Young Lynch Bages, Clerc Milon and Poyferre... I could go on.


The 2016 Poitevin has a crisp, focused bouquet with pure blackberry and boysenberry notes tinged with crushed stone. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, quite feminine in style with a silky smooth, black cherry and blueberry finish that caresses the senses. This is a well-crafted, utterly delicious Médoc. Tasted at the Oenoconseil tasting room in Bordeaux.
