I love Bordeaux bottles! They tell you absolutely nothing about the wine, google helped me out on that one, which happens to be a 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc and 20% Merlot blend. Even though the wine ranks on the 9th level of the cru Bourgeois classification I’d be happy to serve this anytime.
What I first notice is the wine has very good length and bright fruit, well you can’t really call tobacco, green capsicum and gravel fruit but you get what I mean. There is a sense of crushed violets, chalk and coffee beans coming into play, mixed with tart plums, which is only let down by a watery finish on the back palate.
Price: 18 euro per half bottle
