Made by the Valades family who have a well-earned a reputation for being masters of Merlot. Harvesting is done by hand and yields are kept low to produce wine with concentrated fruits.
A blend of 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, full of attractive acidity and blackberry fruits. Fine tannins which are just now beginning to soften. Ripe flavours and a supple texture on the palate, with the added element of oak ageing to give complexity. Ideal for decanting an hour before serving with red meats, especially the classic Bordeaux dish of roast lamb.
French still red wine from Côte de Bordeaux Bordeaux France, made with Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.
