Chateau Turcaud Bordeaux Rouge 2016
Colour: Beautiful garnet-red colour with purple highlights. Nose: Spicy (pepper, clove and eucalyptus), blackberry and red fruit aromas with toasty, smoky, and forest floor overtones. Palate: The freshness on the nose is also to be found on the palate. Good, long, fruity aftertaste. The tannin becomes more round and the wine altogether more balanced after several months bottling. Tasting advice: Can be enjoyed even when quite young thanks to its intrinsic fruitiness, and even benefits from being served slightly chilled. This wine reaches its peak within five to eight years after the vintage, slightly longer if in magnum. It pairs beautifully with poultry and red meat, especially entrecôte steak cooked over vine cuttings, as well as the cheese platter.
