CHÂTEAU PUYNARD PREMIUM 2016

From 40 year old vines, this is our best expression of the quality Cabernet Sauvignon from our clay-limestone vineyards in Berson on the right bank of Bordeaux. A blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Merlot, the ripe and rich fruit is well-matched to the time it spent in 100% new French oak. The 2016 vintage was characterised by a dry and hot summer that was broken by a storm on the 13th September. After this time, the relatively cool days up to harvest means the fruit was ripe and rich but with good acidity and tannic structure. The intensity of the fruit and quality of the tannins allows this wine to be drunk now or age for 5 to 8 years for further development. Only 1200 bottles produced.
