A fresh and lightly salty young red with a medium body, firm and silky tannins and a crisp finish. Linear and focused.
There was no frost in this vineyard in 2017, due to its elevation. Blended of 80% Merlot with 10% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2017 Clos les Lunelles is very deep purple-black in color with a nose of crushed blackcurrants, warm black plums, potpourri and spice cake with hints of cigar box and incense. Full-bodied, rich and with great intensity, it has firm, grainy tannins and lovely freshness, finishing with great length.
The 2017 Clos Lunelles, from Côtes de Castillon on the limestone plateau at 95m in altitude, is matured in 50% new oak. It has a rich and quite opulent bouquet with plush blackberry and raspberry coulis scent, a little monochromatic compared to its peers. The palate is medium-bodied with rounded tannin, a fine line of acidity, less opulent than the aromatics with a harmonious finish that suggests this may well pull together after it has completed its barrel maturation. Let’s see.
Inky crimson with opaque core. Smells much fresher and more fragrant than the Monbousquet. Smells of small dark wild berries. Lots of oak char here too but the balance is better, with more fruit and the acidity is more in harmony. Full in the mouth. Chewy finish and the alcohol (14.66%) stands out a little on the nose when you go back to it. Needs a lot of time. (JH)
