Vintage 2019

Château Moulin de Grenet, Chateau Cantenac

Product Code: ME01ZZRC

Tasting Notes

2018 : beautiful deep color, aromatic, ripe black and red fruits (plum, red berries), settled, mild spices, light earth and oak influence. Generous mouthfeel, then welcome freshness and balance at the core, with a fine texture, ripe tanins, dark fruits, a touch of minerality and spices on the edges. Expressive finish, nice balance, with good length. Very enjoyable. Settled wine, still developing.

            [Notes4] => This generous wine get its personnality from its limestone on clay terroir (fresh and mineral) and from a lot of sunlight (ripe fruits). It has a charming red colour with purple reflections. Its nose reveals flavours of red and black fruits (blackberry, balackcurrant and raspberry),  light liquorice and spices. The mouth is very fruity, juicy, with a good mineral power. The finale is expressive. A traditionnal Lussac, round and generous. Beautiful to drink in its young age !
