Château Carteau 2020 Saint Emilion Grand Cru
Neal Martin (Vinous)
The 2020 Carteau Côtes Daugay has a commendable, plush bouquet of ripe black cherries and blueberry fruit, the oak nicely integrated. The palate is medium-bodied with saturated tannins, moderate acidity, good grip and much better delineation on the finish compared to recent vintages that I have encountered. It needs a bit of taming during élevage; if that is successful, this could turn into a very decent Saint-Émilion.
