The 2016 vintage in Bordeaux is widely heralded as the best in Bordeaux since the epic 2010 vintage. Journalists have unleashed a bevy of 100-point ratings on the Bordeaux class of 2016. Parker’s Wine Advocate has given nine of them in total, and gave the vintage an enormous 97 point score as a whole.
Rarely do all the critics so unanimously agree as they do in 2016 a vintage that is simply fantastic from “top to bottom,” making not only for 100-pointers that will age gracefully for 4 decades, but for a handful of magnificent “sleepers” from the Right Bank’s rising stars.
None more so that Stephane Donze at Chateau Martinat.
The 2016 Chateau Martinat that Stephane crafted is nothing short of a classic — aromatically complex, generously infused with ripe cassis and small black fruit compote, all the natural concentration bolstered by just a touch of earth. Drink now until sometime after 2030!

This blend of mainly Merlot with some Malbec has weight along with a fresher element that gives it a lift. Black plum fruits are laced with acidity while also powered by firm, young tannins.
