Trent scored this wine: 90/100
You don’t often find Bordeaux and reasonably priced in the same sentence, but if you look in the Bordeaux hinterlands, like the Cote de Blaye, you can find some good, well priced wines. This blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon is tannic and could do with a few years of cellar time to evolve. If you want to try it now, decant to soften it. Then you’ll enjoy the black cherry, spiced plum, cedar, clove, tobacco, leather, and smoke that are concealed in this young wine. Beef tenderloin topped with truffle mushroom topping will bring out its best. This can be cellared until at least 2025 and possibly longer.
