Chateau Bourgneuf 2016


The 2016 Bourgneuf is composed of 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc. Medium garnet-purple colored, it opens with very pretty notions of crushed red cherries, blackberry pie, wild blueberries and potpourri plus hints of tapenade, camphor and tobacco leaf. Medium to full-bodied, the palate delivers a great intensity of perfumed black fruits, framed by rounded tannins and plenty of freshness, finishing long and perfumed. 94 Points – Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

A dense wine with ripe tannins. The fruit is there, although buried in the firm structure. It’s good for the long term. 92-94 Points – Wine Enthusiast

This was extremely subdued when tasted at en primeur, but the way it’s nudging forward is extremely promising. Lush fruit appears on the attack and right on through the-mid palate, before you are pulled up hard on the finish by the strength of the tannins, suggesting a long life ahead and a patient wait before it’s fully ready. Things are softened by a creamy caramel note coming in as things open in the glass, which keeps you enjoyably engaged with the wine. Drinking Window 2022-2035. 93 Points – Decanter

Very plush and attractive tannin texture and a wealth of rich dark plums and berries, make this an attractive wine for the vintage. Great focus and balance. Try from 2022. 93 Points – James Suckling
