Lovely deep garnet in appearance, Dourthe La Grande Cuvée 2016 is irresistible with its rich bouquet redolent of red and black berries, combined with delicately oaked and spicy notes. On the palate, the wine is initially supple, then rapidly gains in volume, underpinned by well-rounded tannins, coated in turn by the fruity, flavoursome and fresh wine. The overall balance of the different components defines this wine, which culminates in a lingering, aromatic, well-integrated oaky finish. Patrick Jestin, President of Dourthe Créé
