Bordeaux blend (75% Merlot)
Classic Cotes de Bourg from a terrific 12 hectare estate of 50 year old vines that is only 30km south of St. Emilion. The Merlot gives this beautiful, full bodied effort a dense core of dark plum and berry fruit, while small amounts of Cabernet Franc (20%) and Malbec (5%) add herbs and spice while enhancing the impressive structure. Vinified in concrete before maturing in French oak barrels for 18-24 months (50% new). Amazing now with two hours in the decanter, or cellared for 10-20 years.
