2016 Petit Manou – France, Bordeaux, Médoc (9/24/2019)
Day 1: Popped open a new bottle after the first one was corked. Nice overall with cherry, raspberries, leather, spice and rose petals. Medium finish and good acidity.
Day 2: Chestnuts, raspberries, mild oak, leather, earth and gravel. More complex than day 1. Medium plus finish. Drink now to 2022. 90 points
Day 3: Holding form nicely. Chestnuts, oak, leather, gravel, earth and tobacco. Medium plus finish. More concentrated on day 3 and should age easily through 2022. 90 points
