Château Cantenac 2016 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru 

Château Cantenac 2016 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru 

The nose is fruity, spicy and offers power. It reveals notes of blackberry, Cuben pepper and small notes of crushed cassis associated with touches of crushed black cherry, crushed small red fruits as well as hints of vanilla and sweet spices. The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers a good definition, juiciness, roundness, freshness, suavity, a certain dynamism as well as fat and a bit aerial side. On the palate this wine expresses notes of fleshy blackberry, small fleshy berries associated with small touches of cherry, crushed raspberry as well as discreet hints of chocolate, vanilla and licorice. Tannins are well-built. Good length. There are a very discreet hint of violet and Cuben pepper on the finish. There is a hint of cocoa bitterness on the finish / persistence.
