Château de Panigon seduces by its delicacy and complex aroma expression.
First, the aromas of black fruit appear : blackberry and blackcurrant, then appear the notes of toasted bread.
The touch is well balanced, long and round. tannins are melted and he finish is fruity.
The 2016 vintage is a racy wine which shows a lot of generosity and delicacy.
