“The 2016 Fleur-Haute-Gaussen Grand Cru is a three-way blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Malbec. It has an endearing nose of pure black cherry and blackberry mixed with blueberry and violet, rather in the style of Margaux. The palate is very well balanced with lush blackberry and boysenberry flavours, complemented by pencil lead and cedar. It is harmonious and long on the palate, but not overwhelming, and finishes clean and taut. This is a sumptuous Bordeaux that is almost too easy to drink, so be prepared for a second bottle.” Neal Martin
