Château Lamothe - Cuvée Les Tuileries
AOC Côtes de Bourg Red
A beautiful garnet red. Intense bouquet redolent of blackcurrant and spice. The succulent palate is ample, smooth and full-bodied. A generous, pleasing mid-palate that displays a creamy structure enveloped in chewy extract, with ripe tannins providing a harmonious crowning touch. A wine that is typical of its appellation. A good match for grilled or roasted meat or cheese over an informal meal.
To drink from 2014.
A beautiful dark purple colour, hardly evolved. The generous and expressive bouquet reminds one of fully ripe grapes (blackberries, prunes, confected fruits), and from the ageing (mocca/cedar) with hints of leather and the forest floor. The palate is well balanced, warming at first, ample and full bodied, supported by elegant, ripe tannins. A benchmark Cotes-de-Bourg with the power and elegance of wine made in the modern style, which one can really appreciate, preferably after a few years in bottle.
To drink from 2016.
