Tasting notes

Légende Medoc 2016 – This vintage exhibits a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot of which 50% is aged in French oak – the rest in stainless steel to retain freshness and purity of fruit. The nose offers an array of black fruit, earthy toasted spice and cedar. There’s a freshness and crunch to the palate which will ensure this wine cellars well, but there’s also a silky plush edge which enables immediate enjoyment.

Ch. Clarke 2006 – Rustic, earthy, structured and complex. Let’s make no mistake about it, this vintage is built in a traditional style. If you like sweet edged new world fruit with no structure then this isn’t for you. Clarke 2006 is broad and classical with juicy tannins and bags of earthy tertiary complexity. There’s cedar, forest floor, iron filings, black cherry and cigar box on the nose with a dense full bodied palate that is crying out for a hearty dish. Decant for thirty minutes and enjoy with beef and mushroom pie!

Ch. Odilon 2016 – Classic Merlot on the nose; red cherry, blackberry and plum. Micro-oxygenation occurs in the barrel which enables the wine to reveal an array of mature spices; cinnamon, vanilla and nutmeg. The dense and rich fruit has great freshness and energy, which are classic traits of the wonderful 2016 vintage. Although this drinks well now after a few hours in a decanter, you can’t help thinking it’s best years lay ahead.
