Superb example of a well-structured Bordeaux. This Gold-Medal-winning Cotes de Bourg is 75% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 10% Malbec. Intense ruby colour. Lovely fresh aromas of fruits of the forest which open up well when the wine is allowed to breathe a little. Silky tanins. Hints of pepper and spice. Interesting appraisal by Andresommelier on You Tube http://bit.ly/WPuNuA .
Excellent accompaniement to grilled meats - particularly lamb chops also roasts and braised rabbit. Drink now and keep some bottles for a few years.
Its Gold Medal at the Concours de Bordeaux absolutely justified
