Château Plaisance

BORDEAUX

2018

Delicate Fabric

TASTING NOTE

There is a good attack of fruit here and the Merlot is tense and racy while the Cabernet adds some muscle and intent. The nose is red cherry-scented and the chassis is a little more slender and curvaceous than many of the other more powerful wines in this vintage and it is a very nicely packaged wine. It will need one or two years to soften and then this will be a fragrant, sleek cherry-bomb of a wine.
