The Haut-Medoc wines in the Bordeaux region of France have produced some of its best-ever wines in 2016, which have benefited from Cabernet Sauvignons which ripened slowly due to a dry season and late harvest. The wines are characterized by a fruity nuance and intense power, moderated by silky tannins. Anson says that this is the year of the appellation’s best-ever – Chateau Centemerle – a Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot blend, which she describes as “lovely and juicy,” with a tasting score of 93. She also describes 13 other wines, each with a tasting score of 90 or above.
