Chateau Petit Bocq 2018
50% Merlot, 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Petit Verdot Enticing and aromatic, with black and blue fruit on the nose, while the palate is dressed with liquorice, nutmeg and a beautiful, cool graphite minerality. Lovely aromas of walnuts, bark, dark berries and currants follow though to a full body with round, juicy tannins that are rich and layered. Long, flavorful finish. Very balanced for the vintage. Try after 2024.
