2020 Les Tourelles de Longueville
(Wine sampled from tubes) A blend of 64% Merlot, 29% Cabernet Sauvignon and 7% Cabernet Franc. The dominance of Merlot in this second wine takes center stage. Medium-bodied with an intense ruby hue with floral spice and sandalwood overtones. It has a silky mouth-feel that coats the palate with red raspberry coulis, cinnamon, and star anise. It remains graceful and memorable from start to finish.
