Type: Red Wine
Cepage: 47% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot, 8% Malbec
AOC: Cotes du Bourg
A dollop of Malbec and a Venezuelan owner/winemaker, Oswaldo Hernandez, make this claret stand out from the crown. Plenty of ripe fruit and toasty new oak on the nose, this is modern, flamboyant and easy to drink.
"A soft, elegant, finesse-styled wine with light tannin, dark ruby colour, attractive berry fruit with hints of liquorice, damp earth and some tobacco leaf." Robert Parker
Ideal food pairing: succulent sirloin steak, cooked rare.
