Château Les Cabannes, Saint-Emilion Grand Cru, 2016

Cabannes is a tiny 5 hectare estate bought by Canadian Peter Kjeilberg in 1997, now planted to 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. The wine goes into 30% new oak (restrained by SEGC standards); and that shows in its approachability.

Really generous blackcurrant flavour, svelte and harmonious. Fine tannins. Ready - a perfect example of a ripe, modern-style right bank red. Now-2025

Absolutely loving the sun case, what a great way to be introduced to new wines.

Just wanted to say thank you so much for sending my order of 2 x Domaine Begude Rosé to my son and daughter-in-law - I couldn't believe that they received it within a day of my placing the order with you. That is IMPRESSIVE, especially given the current trying times.
