AOC Côtes de Bourg Red
A sumptuous deep burgundy hue with ruby tints. The bouquet is an elegant mix of overripe black-berried fruits, cherry notes and hints of spice. The chewy, mouthfilling palate is rounded and well-structured thanks to taut but perfectly smooth tannins wrapped in silky extract, imparting excellent balance. Born of a great vintage, this wine is a fine achievement.
To drink from 2016. Worth cellaring for two years before drinking.
A brilliant, sombre wine that holds the promise of great generosity. The bouquet is redolent of black-berried fruit and spices and incredibly fresh, with just a touch of earthiness. The rounded palate with silky tannins reveals expressive extract and great character. Lingering finish, offering fine aromatic intensity. A beautiful wine made by careful vinification, in an exceptional vintage.
A decidedly great wine, to be enjoyed with friends from 2017.
