It has been awhile since my last posting. I had caught the flu back around 01/21/19 and it has taken me until now to really get all my senses back to honestly rate these wines properly. Tonight I have opened the 2016 Château La Confession Saint-Émilion Grand Cru by Jean-Philippe Janoueix. The blend is 72% Merlot and 28% Cabernet Franc.

The nose is showing good black fruit, black cherry, blackberry, black currant, licorice, clove, tobacco leaf, violet, graphite and earth.

On the palate is luscious dark fruit, black cherry, black raspberry, black currant, black plum, graphite, pencil shavings, tobacco, cedar and mocha.

This wine is full bodied with a soft juicy mouthfeel, medium+ acidity and medium + chewy tannins that lead to a long sustained dark fruit finish. I am glad to be back tasting and feeling 100%. It is the middle of the week so please be safe and work into the weekend. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷
