Château De La Grange
AOC Blaye - Côtes de Bordeaux Red
The fruit of a legendary vintage from an exceptional terroir, this wine owes its remarkable quality to the painstaking work undertaken in the vineyard in recent years (short pruning, managed grass cover, restricted yields, green harvesting, integrated pest control), as well as to winemaking techniques aimed at fostering extraction of the fruit and colour without an overly robust structure. A blend of Merlot and Cabernet, on swirling this 2010 opens to reveal intensely fruity aromas with spicy notes of the finest quality. Ample, rich extract, a perceptible but supple tannic structure, fruit elegantly rubbing shoulders with hints of spice, the beautifully fresh finish – this wine has everything for a pleasant tasting experience. It will make a fine accompaniment for gourmet charcuterie, white or barbecued meat, side of beef with ceps, or mature cheese.
Ready for drinking from 2014. Good ageing potential.
