Côtes de Bordeaux 2019 Barrel
80% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon
Box of 6 bottles
Colour: light ruby, brilliant, red with a purple edge. The wine has a medium concentration and the legs are coloured.
Nose: the first nose is spicy with aromas of cinnamon, nutmeg and clove. The fruit is ripe and precise with mainly black fruits like blackcurrant and blueberry. The aromas are beautiful with creamy notes mixed with pink pepper.
Palate: the wine is dry, with moderate but well balanced acidity. The alcohol is slightly high but integrated and the tannins are polished and refined. The finish is fruity and floral, with moderate length.
Goes well with: ravioli stuffed with bolognese sauce.
Comment: a juicy red wine to be drunk young, from a biodynamic viticulture. Cellar 2021-2025.
Score: 91/100 by PAZ LEVISON (tasting in April 2021 at the Château)
