Château La Courolle, St-Émilion, Montagne-St-Émilion, 2016
Drinking Window: 2020 - 2027
Situated on the clay-limestone plateau, La Courolle has been owned by the Guimberteau family for 100 years, with fourth-generation Rodolphe now in charge. Merlot dominates with a small proportion of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. The palate is full, ripe and soft with leafy black fruit, subtle oak (33% new), fine tannins and a long finish.
