Château Jouclary Les Amandiers 2020


Château Jouclary Les Amandiers 2020
AOP Cabardès
This marvellous blend of Rhône and Bordeaux grape varieties is made from 50% Merlot, 30% Syrah and 20% Grenache.  It is then aged in 2-year old barrels to achieve a subtle oak influence.  

Deep in colour, it has a cedary black cherry nose, which leads into  a sumptuous mouthful of blackcurrant, black cherry and woodsmoke. There are soft ripe tannins at the finish with a lingering aftertaste of liquorice.  Delicious now but it will age gently over the next three years.

The 2017 was a knock-out success at the last YMS annual dinner!
