Chateau Cote de Baleau Saint Emilion 2016
|Region||France, Bordeaux, St. Emilion|
|Brand||Chateau Cote de Baleau|
This has a fun, juicy feel, with waves of plum sauce, raspberry puree and cherry preserves running through, while singed vanilla and red licorice notes wrap up the finish. It's a fruit-friendly style but has enough grip to stay honest. Best from 2021 through 2031.
The medium garnet-purple colored 2016 Cote de Baleau sashays out of the glass with redcurrants, red cherries and black plums scents plus hints of cinnamon stick and oolong tea. Medium-bodied, the palate has a great core of savory accented red and black fruits with a chewy texture and earth-laced finish.
