Chateau Soussans 2016
Maceration lasts approximately 20 days, malolactic fermentation partially in new casks with racking from cask to cask. Fining is done with egg whites and the wines spend 12-15 months in French oak casks.
Made with 50% Cabernet Sauvignon and 50% Merlot the wine is soft and silky with perfumed strawberry jam on the nose. Ripe plum and cream come through on the palate which has supple tannins and an attractive, lively red fruit finish. This elegant Margaux will be lovely to drink, share and enjoy over the next decade.
