The best vintage of Le Chatelet I have ever tasted starts off with notes of smoke, licorice, espresso, red and black fruits in the perfume. Medium-bodied, silky and fresh, with a dose of oak on the palate which needs to better integrate before you find all the sweet, red fruits on the palate and in the finish. Drink from 2023-2037.
