Chateau de Panigon Medoc 2018
|Region||France, Bordeaux, Medoc|
|Brand||Chateau de Panigon|
Dark red with dark purple highlights. Pleasant nose opening up to red and black berry fruit notes of blackcurrant and strawberry. The palate is precise and supported by well-integrated tannins. Pleasant fruit and spice aromatics are present throughout. Pair with grilled rack of lam, red meat, ceps in parsley, grilled duck breast and strong cheeses.
Reflecting the rich, dense 2018 vintage, this wine has a concentration that shows richness and juicy black fruits. It is taking its time to mature, still with a core of dryness. Drink the wine from 2025.
The 2018 Château de Panigon demonstrates a little reduction on the nose, although underneath it reveals light, slightly briny black fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly rustic tannins and decent weight and cedar- tinged black fruit on the tightly wound finish. Fine.
