50 % Merlot, 50% Cabernet Sauvignon.
This is a unique Bordeaux, One of the 2 great Bordeaux we stock that is made by women. Most Bordeaux winemakers have been Men over the years, but this pleasant departure shows a nice mellowing of traditional Bordeaux styles. Although this wine is only 50% Merlot, I would call it Merlot driven as this is the predominant character of a softer, smoother style of winemaking. Art shows through on this Gem!
The nose is a subtle blend of cocoa, Kirch and spices. An intense fruitiness on jammy red fruits (strawberry and raspberry) and a very pleasant suppleness. The finish is on notes of toast and spices.
Ideal with a duck breast or game in sauce, it will also go perfectly with a good rib of grilled beef.
