Chateau Haut Mirambet 2016 – Wine Review

Chateau Haut Mirambet

This is a wine review of Chateau Haut Mirambet 2016. This wine is a blend of grapes from the Bordeaux region of France. The grapes used in this blend are Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. The alcohol content is 13% and it goes for about $10.00 per bottle if you can find it in the states. According to Vivino this wine is one of the top 10% in the world and a top vintage for this particular bottle when compared to other vintages.

Appearance

The bottle is clear with a white label that has a rooster present. The wine itself is a clear, pale ruby in color.

Nose/Aroma

The nose is clean with a medium intensity of aromas. The aromas consist of red and black berry fruits such as blackberry, raspberry and black currant. There are some nice hints of cedar and vanilla in the aromas of this wine as well. This Chateau Haut Mirambet 2016 is youthful.

Tasting

This wine is dry with medium acidity and a medium plus body. This also has a medium plus tannin structure. The flavor intensity is a medium with notes that follow directly from the nose but with some subtle differences. Notes of black currant, blackberry,and tart raspberry in terms of fruits followed by some oak / cedar followed by type notes. The finish is long with a nice dark chocolate like note that lingers on the palate long after the wines gone!

Overall Experience

This Chateau Haut Mirambet 2016 is a very good wine with balance and a decent array of fruit flavors, secondary and tertiary flavors to the profile, which gives this wine a great complexity level for it being a younger Bordeaux. The finish length is great as well. Overall I think this wine could become an excellent or great wine with a few more years of bottle aging.
