Château Lastours 2016 Gaillac.
Similar in style to a Claret, yet with a warm smooth finish, this makes for perfect current drinking. This vintage is full and savoury with lots of ripe fruit and is drinking well.
- GrapesCabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah
Good levels of sweet fruit, mellow, quite rich, good finish. Soft. Improves with airing. Cabernet/Merlot/Syrah/Duras/Fer Servadou blend.
