2016 CHATEAU LIVERSAN Haut Medoc Cru Bourgeois (Bordeaux, France)
Style - Elegant
Grapes - 50% Merlot, 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% 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. All backed up by the added richness and precision of the top class 2016 vintage.
FYI: 2016 was the first vintage where the malolactic conversion took place in barrel for this estate.
