Château-Sainte-Marie, Vieilles Vignes, Bordeaux Supérieur, 2016

under 25 pounds72% Merlot, 28% Cabernet Sauvignon 

Dark fruit, very elegant, violets. Ripe but not overripe. 2016 was a cooler vintage than 2015. The 2015 are bigger in fruitiness and ready to drink but the 2016 have a more elegant character, are more balanced. These will age well.
