Château Les Grands Maréchaux 2016
This wine is characterized by its aromas of ripe fruit and blackcurrant liqueur, with floral notes (peony and old rose). Racy, balanced and fleshy, it gives even more after 7 years of ageing, enriching itself with delicious aromas of truffles.

“Aromas of violet and blackberry with an elegant feel linger energetically on the palate. A Delight. ”
The first tertiary aromas of undergrowth, humus and cooking juice appear. The fruit remains present with notes of plums in syrup. The attack is juicy and unctuous; the wine is round, relaxed and well balanced with smooth tannins. The final impression is one of greediness.
