Vintage 2016

Clarendelle Bordeaux Rouge, Clarance Dillon

Product Code: CL06ZZRC

Tasting Notes

These wines are very fruity, with aromas of red fruit and blackcurrant alongside floral overtones reminiscent of violet. They combine the tannic power of great vintages with a deliciously velvety texture and rare smooth, powerful, and generous on the palate. Their relatively high level of acidity gives them an admirable freshness and tremendous balance, without any hardness.
