2017 La Chapelle de la Mission, Pessac-Léognan

A nice nose with graphite and smoky complexity. There's energy and freshness, pure fruit, fine tannins, minerality and a touch of cured meat on the finish. Excellent length for a second wine.

TASTING NOTES

Quite tannic but in a very attractive way with blueberries, currants and spices. Medium-bodied, tight and chewy. Show tension and texture.
