Blaye Côtes de Bordeaux Cuvèe Prestige Rouge 2018 - Château des Tourtes
This Cuvèe Prestige Rouge is an AOC Blaye Côtes de Bordeaux and is made from the grapes Merlot (85%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (15%). The harvest is already sorted in the vineyard with a second selection on the 'table de tri'. The grapes are completely destemmed. Maturation in oak barrels lasts 12 months in separate batches. 30% in new barrels and 70% in one or two year old barrels. The Cuvèe Prestige Rouge has a dark ruby red color. The nose has notes of black fruit, vanilla and toast from the oak. The wine is firm and powerful with good tannins allowing the wine to age well. Nice aromatic taste on the palate, candied fruit and nice oak. There are also notes of licorice, clove and a little menthol. Drink now or a few years later. Beautiful with ravioli with mushrooms, risotto with chorizo, grilled meat, camembert or hachee. Serve at 16-18 degrees.
