The wine is deep ruby in color with purple glints. The nose reveals aroma of white pepper and figs, with perfectly integrated blueberry notes. Ageing in oak barrels from the Tonnellerie des Domaines in Pauillac adds subtle notes of nutmeg to the wine. This vintage shows an exceptional complexity. The fruit is bright and luminous, supported by well integrated oak and a refreshing acidity. The tannins are soft and silky and contribute to the wine's persistence. This wine will reveal its complexity with further bottle ageing

2016 might have reminded visiting Bordelais of a particularly wet harvest back home, but the best wines from the vintage are refreshing, balanced and wonderfully “European” in style. Combining Cabernet Sauvignon with 17% Malbec, this is a stunning blend showing elegance, poise and finesse. Racy and nuanced, with graphite, cedarwood and polished tannins.

The cedary nose of the 2016 Caro transported me to the wines from Bordeaux, and the explanation might be because the blend is 83% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Malbec—the highest percentage of Cabernet in the history of Caro. This has very good complexity; it feels young (Cabernet tends to develop at a slower pace than Malbec), even though it matured in 100% new oak the oak is very integrated. The barriques are only produced by the Lafite barrel makers, and there is great care in the selection of the wood and the toast; the barrels are designed to produce a more elegant style of wine, subtle and harmonious, with a notable absence of toasted and smoky aromas. This wine is polished and sleek, but there is nice balance to develop nicely in bottle for a good decade. 50,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in December 2017.

Already quite open, this is a cool and slightly shy wine with ripe plum, delicate herb and toasty aromas. The rather sleek palate and fresh acidity carry the long, clean, rather stony finish. For the first time, this is dominated by 90 per cent cabernet sauvignon. Drink or hold.
