Tasting Notes

Chateau Les Hauts Conseillants deep, garnet red colour. The nose has aromas of ripe blackberry and black cherry fruit alongside more savoury, smoky, herbaceous and okay notes. This is rich and medium to full bodied wine on the palate with an abundance of black fruits flavours (blackberry and black currant), some savoury spicy naunces and a hint of vanilla-y oak. It is well structured with chewy tannins and a firm, mineral back bone with lengthy, dry finish.
