AOC Blaye - Côtes de Bordeaux Red
Remarkably situated on the calcareous clay slopes bordering the Gironde, Château Gontier is one of the venerable wine estates of the Blaye winegrowing area, dating from the nineteenth century and straddling the villages of Blaye and Plassac. The estate was bought a few years ago by the Bayle-Carreau family which has poured all its know-how and passion into making Château Gontier one of the rising stars of the AOC Blaye-Côtes de Bordeaux.
A beautiful red hue with purple tints, this Blaye Côtes de Bordeaux will charm you with its aromas of black berried fruits and spices and toasty notes. Fine tannic structure on the palate, with well-integrated oak. An elegant, supple and silky wine which achieves an excellent compromise between finesse and power. An ideal match for a red meat dish or a generous cheese board. An accessible wine that also makes an excellent aperitif, great with any modern or improvised cuisine.
Ready for drinking from 2015, with an ageing potential of several years.
