    A Saint-Émilion Grand Cru red wine with magnificent depth

    Château Le Prieuré is a Grand Cru Classé produced in the Saint-Émilion Grand Cru appellation. The vines, 44-year-old on average grow on a 6.24-hectare estate planted on a limestone plateau. The harvest took place between the 12th and 20th of October. The 2016 vintage blends 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc.

    At tasting, the Château Le Prieuré 2016 expresses an exceptionally rich and intense nose. Dense with intense tannins on the palate, this wine of great character proves to be extremely deep. To keep until 2050 or later.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    The 2016 Le Prieure has an attractive, quite floral bouquet with plenty of blackberry and blueberry fruit, the oak nicely integrated. The palate is medium-bodied with supple ripe tannin, plenty of blackberry and bilberry fruit intermingling with tobacco and spice towards the finish. This is a fine Le Prieuré from Paul Goldschmidt (see also Le Siaurac and Vray Croix de Gay) but let's see if it surpasses the excellent 2015.
