Chateau Fort Lignac Haut Medoc 2016
|Region||France, Bordeaux, Haut Medoc|
|Brand||Chateau Fort Lignac|
"Powerful red wine. Haut-Medoc offers a lot to the beholder. Led by Cabernet Sauvignon, the color is a deep red with complex woody aromas. Black fruits, licorice or currant flavors appear, touch of mint."
This estate is in Cussac, close to the Gironde estuary. The tannins and firm structure give way to juicy acidity and a fresh layer from the 70% Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend. The wine's dry core is softening and it should be ready to drink from 2021.
