Chateau Maison Blanche Medoc 2016
|Region||France, Bordeaux, Medoc|
|Brand||Chateau Maison Blanche|
The medium to deep garnet-purple colored 2016 Maison Blanche is a little youthfully shy to begin, opening out to subtle kirsch, blackberries and cassis notes with wafts of wild sage, underbrush and tobacco. Medium to full-bodied, it fills the mouth with juicy red and black berry flavors, with a grainy frame and refreshing finish.
The high alcohol shows in this wine. While it offers some fresh black-currant flavor, the wine seems heavy. The fault must lie with the superripe Merlot that dominates the wine.
