2020 Château de Candale  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 91

Mineral driven, dark red fruits, savory herbs and a touch of oak are the first things you notice. On the palate the wine is medium-bodied,, with silky tannins, freshness and salinity in the endnote. This should be delicious to drink shortly after release. 90-92 Pts
