Chateau d'Arcins 2016
This stunning cru—a blend of 60% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc/Petit Verdot—is certainly a wine for the ages.
Smoke and sweet tar swirl around Tahitian vanilla beans and crushed stones on the intoxicating nose. The mouth is not shy; lose yourself in flavors of ginger candy and cassis, smothered in a layer of silky, dark chocolate ganache. A monumental wine, with the structure and intensity to last a lifetime. The harmony and balance here is stunning. Worth way more than the pricetag.
