Wine of the Week
Chateau Pas De L’Ane ‘15
“The 2015 Château Pas de L’Ane offers generous crushed strawberry and cranberry on the nose, a little obvious perhaps, but sensual and charming. The palate is sweet and intense on the entry, ebullient red cherry, kirsch and iodine notes matched by requisite acidity and a long and persistent, satisfying finish. This is a well-made, delicious Saint Émilion.”
