The 2016 Patache d’Aux has a lovely, joyful bouquet with raspberry and wild strawberry, tinged with mint and light cedar scents. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grain tannin, well balanced with much more poise than many of its Cru Bourgeois peers. This is a classy offering from Patache d’Aux. Excellent. Tasted at the Cru Bourgeois tasting in London (October 2018).
Château Patache d’Aux 2016 is a blend of power and delicacy, revealing rare aromatic freshness. The powerful vintage offers great cellar potential and mid-term drinkability. It is best to wait 5 years before opening a vintage 2016, at the risk of discovering a still compact wine!
