Chateau De Mercues - Les Eveques Cuvee 6666 2018
Blackish, deep purple and somewhat crimson color. Enigmatic. Powerful bouquet of liquorish, with subtle hints of chocolate, blackberry, and stewed blackcurrant. Rich and full-bodied on the palate with fine grained tannin and an ethereal sort of elegance. A svelte, thoroughbred wine.
