De Beaurepaire Le Chevalier 2016

 

This Merlot, Cabernet and Petit Verdot blend loves spice. It eats it.

A 55/39/6 blend, it sees 14 months of French oak. It's soft early on with respectable persistence. Plummy and a bit stewed, a slight nuttiness and dark chocolate kicks in late with the spice running hard on close.

Drink to five years.

88/100
