Clos des Menuts Saint Emilion 2016
|Region||France, Bordeaux, St. Emilion|
|Brand||Clos des Menuts|
At the heart of the Saint Emilion appellation, CLOS DES MENUTS is a good-keeping wine which is round and fullbodied, with delicate tannins. A very deeply colored wine. A powerful nose, very complex with notes of vanilla and toasted bread. Full on the palate the wine has a lovely structure and has good balance between the fruit of ripe grapes and the vanilla oak tannins. It goes marvelously well with meat, poultry, game and cheese.
A touch of Cabernet Franc in this wine has brought out perfumes that contrast with the indulgent Merlot. The wine has weight, concentration and structure. Give it time and drink from 2022.
