Château Daugay AOC Saint-Émilion Grand Cru Christian de Bouard de Laforest, 2016




Grape Variety

Cabernet Franc

In my view, 2016 is one of the best vintages Château Daugay has ever produced. Intense in colour, it has sweet aromas of coconut, vanilla, blackberries and forest fruits. In the mouth it is concentrated with black fruits, blackcurrant and vanilla. A blend of 70% Merlot, 23% Cabernet Franc and 7% Cabernet Sauvignon, the grapes were picked between October 7 and 15, 2016. The 6.9 hectares of vineyards of Château Daugay are situated on the slope from Saint-Émilion facing southsouth-west. Once upon a time the grapes from these vineyards were incorporated into Château Angelus. Today the estate is managed by Hélène Grenié de Boüard, who makes the wines, and her husband Bernard. The 2016 was aged 35% in new oak barrels, 35% in oneyear old barrels and 30% in tank.
