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.
There’s beautiful ripeness and depth in the 2016 Château La Courolle, which comes from the Montagne region of Saint Emilion. Loads of plums, black cherries, blueberries, graphite, and subtle oak all emerge from this medium to full-bodied, nicely balanced, incredibly satisfying 2016 that I expect will sell for a song. Made from 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, drink it any time over the coming 7-8 years. -JD
