AOC Blaye - Côtes de Bordeaux Red
The result of a legendary vintage and made almost entirely from Merlot grapes, this is a profound, red-hued wine. The nose unveils generous aromas of overripe blackcurrant, stewed red fruit and prune with earthy, toasty notes. The ripened grapes impart a creamy, dense and silky texture to an elegantly extracted palate. Dense, delicately oaked tannins provide structure and length.
Ready for drinking from 2014, with an ageing potential of several years.
