2019 – Château Clarisse Vieilles Vignes – Vinous – Neal Martin – 91

The 2019 Cuvée Vieilles Vignes has a refined, generous bouquet of seductive raspberry and blueberry fruit, like the regular cuvée but with more oomph. The palate is medium-bodied with soft tannins, fleshy and generous, though curiously, it doesn’t quite have hte same vigor as the regular bottling. Still, there is fine persistence here.
