Beautiful purple color. The nose reveals attractive aromas of blackberry, cedar and wood scents. The attack is slightly full-bodied with catchy tannins that lasquer the palate. Then an impressive freshness and density are revealed on the finish. Elegant, balanced and gourmet at the same time. Pairs well with strong meat or toasted meat, delicatessen, fines cheeses.

The 2016 Chateau Fleur Haut Gaussens is a blend of 85% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc/Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Malbec. There is initially a soupçon of small reduction on the nose, although this soon blows away to reveal attractive blackberry, cedar and woodland scents. The palate is medium-bodied with grippy tannins on the entry that lacquer the mouth. But there is also plenty of freshness here, very focused with impressive body and density on the finish. What a superb Bordeaux Supérieur! This is worth hunting down. (Readers in the UK should note that this is distributed through Berry Brothers & Rudd.)

Lightly toasted along the edges, with a cocoa note slowly melding into the core of plum and dark cherry fruit, ending with a tug of tobacco. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Malbec. Drink now. 10,000 cases made, 3,000 cases imported.

This ripe wine has attractively soft tannins and juicy, jammy red-berry flavors. It does have a dry core but the fruit is dominant. Drink this wine from 2021.
