JEAN-PIERRE MOUEIX BORDEAUX 2016 is a brilliant crimson red. The nose expresses subtle nuances of strawberry, licorice, spice and forest floor. On the palate the wine is supple with well integrated tannins. The long and fresh finish is dominated by red fruit notes.
The 2016 climatic year was composed of two distinct parts. First, a cool and wet spring with record rainfall (259 mm from April to June, compared to 108 mm during the same period in 2015). A short break from the rain in May allowed for a quick and even flowering.
The weather shifted in mid-June, giving way to clear skies and warm temperatures. The vegetative cycle slowed over the summer months, but rain in mid-September allowed the grapes to reach full maturity. At harvest, the berries were crunchy, gorged with sugar yet fresh at the same time, with intense notes of black fruit, the skins redolent with mild tannins, the seeds crisp.Product Sheet
