Chateau du Glana 2016-Wine

Chateau du Glana 2016

In stock
750ml / 2016 / Bordeaux
Owned by brothers Ludovic and Julien Meffre, this wine is a deep purple colour with extremely aromatic juice, delivering the triumvirate of what you want in a primeur wine - fruit, freshness and genuine astringency on the tannins. The black cherry and cassis fruit is inevitably held back a little at this stage, but there is potential for bedding down during ageing, making this a very promising wine. Good St-Julien classicism on display here. 56% Cabernet Sauvignon and 44% Merlot with 12 months in 40% new oak. Christophe Olliver of the Dubourdieu group is consulting oenologist here. A wine to watch, these vines once formed part of the Saint Pierre estate.

Ratings
The work of the vine in reasonable control, manual grape harvesting, thermo-regulated vatting, partial vinification, breeding for 12 months in barrels, nearly half of which are renewed each year, this combination of traditional methods and modern techniques Has led for a decade to a constant improvement in the quality of this wine already recognized Cru Bourgeois Superior in the classification of 1978.
