2016 CHATEAU LIVERSAN Cru Bourgeois 75cl (Bordeaux, France)
Style - Elegant
Grapes - Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot
Tasting - Prototype of Haut Médoc wines right here: cigar-box and pencil shavings accent the blackberry and violet scents. In the mouth steel-like coolness turns to menthol and cassis. Lovely soft grip to the tannins on the end.
FYI: 2016 was the first vintage where the malolactic conversion took place in barrel for this estate.
