About This Wine
This year's blend is Merlot (80%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (20%). The wine is crafted in a mixture of concrete and wooden vessels without any additions and the wine is bottled without fining or filtration. Only a little sulphur is used at bottling, otherwise the wine sees no additions at all. The nose, although deeply set at this stage, seeps graphite, blackberry liqueur, plum skin and ripe red fruits. The mouthfeel is intense, compact, fresh and balanced. There is plenty of dark, savoury fruit with silky tannins promising to meld beautifully with any moist beef or lamb dish--steak frites, please. The wine is pure and clean, yet lacks nothing in the character stakes. In short, a hearty, super authentic Bordeaux country red that represents, to our minds, remarkably wallet-friendly value.
