Chateau Mazeyres Pomerol 2016
|Region||France, Bordeaux, Pomerol|
Barrel Sample. This is a ripe and generous wine, full of black fruits and ample acidity. There is plenty of tannic grip to frame the fruitiness. It is going to be rich, ripe and finely structured.
Warm and easy in feel, with soft-textured flavors of plum sauce, raspberry preserves and linzer torte gliding through, flecked with light herb, anise and tea notes. Shy on structure, but the fan-friendly style will have appeal. Drink now through 2028. 6,250 cases made.
The medium garnet-purple colored 2016 Mazeyres gives red plums, kirsch and black raspberries with earthy undertones and touches of stewed tea and tobacco. The palate is medium-bodied with a chewy frame and earthy finish.
