Vintage 2018

Clarendelle Medoc Rouge, Clarance Dillon

Product Code: CL03ZZRC

Tasting Notes

"The Indian summer led to the optimum ripeness of the Cabernets, whose proportion forms the backbone of this wine and confers pronounced spicy notes. A deeply-coloured wine with good concentration and black fruit aromas of blackberry and blueberry. Oaky and fruity flavours c ome to the fore, a ccompanied by a minty freshness and spicy and liquorice notes, which add harmony and balance. The wine starts out smooth, becoming increasingly intense yet underpinned by a delicate tannic structure. All in all, a very elegant, full-bodied and powerful wine."
