Clos Manou, Médoc 2021

An exceptionally reliable name, and a skilful winemaker in the shape of Stéphane Dief who is really proving his worth here. Silky tannins, luscious black fruit that is structured and savoury but feels supple and fully ripe. A trace of bitterness on the finish gives a hint of the 2021 vintage, but this is easily one of the wines of the vintage in this (difficult) appellation. Hand harvested; 60% new oak, with the rest in a mix of amhora and concrete eggs. Will be bottled unfined, and only lightly filtered; 52% of overall production.
