Something about CHEVAL QUANCARD CHATEAU TOUR ST JOSEPH

This 44-acre estate in the north of the Haut-Médoc appellation has produced a blend with almost equal quantities of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, spiced with Cabernet Franc. Its rich fruit and warm tannins are already delicious while also having good potential. The wine, ripe and full, should be ready from 2022. Roger Voss
Dunkles Rubingranat, opaker Kern, dezente Randaufhellung, zart rauchig-würzig unterlegte reife Pflaumenfrucht, etwas Cassis, zart nach Orangenzesten. Saftig, feine schokoladige Textur, gut integrierte Tannine, bleibt sehr gut haften, elegant und vielversprechend, gutes Entwicklungspotenzial.
