2018 – Château Clarisse – Vieilles Vignes – Jeb Dunnuck – 90

Coming from a selection of old vines on the upper plateau, the 2018 Château Clarisse Cuvée Vieilles Vignes is another outstanding wine from this estate that has perfumed cassis and black raspberry fruits as well as spice, toasty oak, and dried flower-like aromas and flavors. Medium-bodied and nicely balanced, with silky tannins, it’s well worth following over the coming 10-12 years or so.
