2016 Chateau Noaillac, Medoc, Bordeaux, France
This fabulous property has 46 hectares of 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 55% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot. The estate has been in the hands of the Pagès family for three generations, with Damien, Marc Pages’s grandson, having taken over running things some years ago.
Château Noaillac is now producing succulent, lovely early drinking and great value Bordeaux.
"Rich tannins contrast with the spicy, toasty flavor that will soften into the ripe black-currant fruits." Roger Voss
