Château Beau Secret AOC Haut-Médoc, 2016
A follow on from the 2015 vintage offered last year, the 2016 is equally delicious and scored highly in my tasting. It has more intense fresh fruit characters than the warmer 2015 vintage. It is deep in colour with mellow black fruit aromas. On the palate it is concentrated and youthful with fresh cherry fruits, chocolate and a slate finish. It is produced by Lucie Ribeiro Secret on the small 2.6-hectare vineyard which sits on the highest ridge of Cussac-Fort-Médoc between Margaux and Saint-Julien. It is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot and was aged in a combination of barrels and vats.
