2016 Chateau Destieux Saint Emilion (Futures)
- Size: 750ml
- Type: Red Wine
- Varietal: Red Bordeaux Blend
- Country: France
- Region: Bordeaux, Saint Emilion
The 2016 Destieux put in a far superior performance this year than in 2015. It has a tightly wound bouquet with black cherries and wilted violet aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, a fine line of acidity, a gentle grip and a satisfying and quite persistent, very elegant finish. It is one of the best wines that I have tasted from this estate...more please!

"This is a young red that shows density and energy with blueberry and blackberry character. Medium to full body and silky tannins. Close to the excellent 2015." -James Suckling, Apr 2017
