Chateau La Croix Saint-Pierre, Cotes De Bordeaux, Blaye 2015

IMG_1335

 

Clay soils within the appellation Cotes-de-Bordeaux Blaye are perfect for the grape variety ‘Merlot’ to thrive. This lovely French blend is made up of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. A perfectly balanced red wine with flavours and aromas of ripe fruit. Pronounced ripe cherry and blackberry dominate on the first taste but slowly as the wine opens up it reveals a little sweet spice, hints of oak with gentle tannins creating that soft mouthfeel. This wine was really good value priced at £8, I wouldn’t hesitate to go back for a second bottle or maybe a case!

Purchased from Waitrose £8

Worked really well with cured meats, olives, mature cheese.
