The dress is in deep purple nuances, delicately surmounted by a nascent tufted border. Oily fumes and vanilla flavors combine with aromas of fruity grapes picked at full maturity. It is this sweetness, this fruity roundness that we find in the mouth to offer depth. The 2016 Chateau Saint Eugene is an elegant wine, marbled by its freshness, its subtlety and its originality.
