General Overview Notes & Tasting Impressions

A purple wine with a deep visible depth. It’s darkish and profound in its look, as nicely in its fragrant profile.

Very darkish chocolate notes compete with cherry and prune liqueur for the tittle of dominant aroma on the nostril. Black pepper, licorice, delicate vanilla and darkish caramel full a mysterious and profound scent. Tempting and charming with an intriguing depth!

Château de Chambrun grants the taster with a full physique and plethora of dense tannins, on a dry background with salivating and mineral acidity.

The excellent characteristic right here is the smoothness of the granulous-but-velvety tannic construction.

Dense and compact, it teases your style buds leaving them with a fragile, silky, sand-like texture on the palate. A uncommon and gratifying expertise. Hardly ever have I tasted a wine giving such a corrosive sandy really feel but a really easy textural one! Fairly distinctive.

Flavors are compact and testify of the ripeness of the grapes that should have gone into its making.

Warming prune liqueur, darkish blackberry, and raisin include a heap of blended spices and a buttery caramel sensation amplified by the heat of some apparent alcoholic energy. Huge physique, large tannins, large sensations!

But, all is delivered in a typical Bordeaux proper financial institution and previous world vogue, with minerality and a way of savoriness and class.

An enormous and concentrated wine, in a fairly daring type for a Bordeaux wine, delivering highly effective sensations and a novel textural expertise.

The refined and sophisticated flavors, the minerality and the sense of savoriness regardless of the warming fruity richness, and the distinctive tannic construction give an actual impression which you can style the expression of the sandy and gravely terroir it comes from. A uncommon trait for a wine to have. A lovely one…

When to Drink?

Good to drink now and throughout the subsequent 15 years (2018-2023).

Take pleasure in 🙂
