Chateau Pithivier Bordeaux 2016
Château Pithivier, Bordeaux 2016. 100% Merlot.
Tight and toasty, tar, smoke, plums, blackberries, medium to full bodied, naturally structured and textured. Made from a single vineyard that lies immediately between Saint-Émilion and the Dordogne river. No great back label story here, just obscenely good value-for-money. Oh, and 2016 was a killer vintage across Bordeaux.
Drink now to 2025.
