2016 – Château Clarisse Vieilles Vignes – Jef Dunnuck : 90

The 2016 Château Clarisse Vieille Vignes comes from a selection of older vines on the upper plateau and was brought up in 50% new French oak. Violets, blueberries, blackberries, and incense notes all emerge from this regal, medium-bodied, silky red that shows tons of character. With ripe tannins, it’s already drinking nicely yet will keep for 7-8 years. 2019 – 2027
