The 2016 Chateau les Grands Chenes is a blend of 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon picked from 5 to 18 October. It has a soft and rounded black cherry and red plum scented bouquet with a touch of orange blossom. The palate is sweet on the entry with grainy tannin, quite powerful, but the oak impedes a little towards the finish when other 2016s have demonstrated freshness and precision. Not bad, but this could have been better with more prudence.
60% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon. Ageing for 16 months.
