Tasting Notes

Paradoxically, the 2016 Chateau Grillet seems more developed and yet fresher than the 2017. Caramel overtones frame notes of apricot and peach on the full-bodied, silky-textured palate, hung on a backbone of brine and citrus zest. Less opulent and flamboyant than the 2017, it could be described as more classic, and it will probably age a bit longer.
