Blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (60%) and Syrah (40%) from old vines (around 45 years old). Château Vignelaure 2015 may be drank now but will continue to develop and improve in the bottle for at least ten years. To show the wine full potential it is a good idea to decant the wine before serving.
||2015 & 2016
The nose is fruity and relatively elegant. It reveals notes of wild strawberry acidulous candy, redcurrant and slight notes of raspberry associated with a discreet touch of flowers. The palate is nicely mineral, suave, relatively fat and offers freshness, a good definition and an acid frame (in the background). On the palate this wine expresses notes of strawberry, raspberry and slight notes of redcurrant candy associated with a slight touch of blackberry and white fruit compote (nectarine, pear). Good length and persistence.
