Three superb Bordeaux reds that examples of the wines of the Region without having to break the bank.
The main Grape Variety here is Merlot, which is the softer of the Bordeaux grapes. It is a grape that makes smooth wines that are velvety and fruity. Don’t be fooled, the wines here are a million miles from your everyday Supermarket wines.
We believe this wine to be a rare diamond from Bordeaux as it is well presented, tastes exceptional and is at a very reasonable price point! 2015 was also a great year for Bordeaux. Chateau Roc de Levraut has been run by the same family for 3 generations. Their focus is on producing high quality, very low yields of grapes, giving utmost respect to the vineyard and wines. Special cultivation methods are used that protect the environment and enhance natural competition amongst the vines.
A full-bodied Bordeaux red blend of mostly Merlot with 15% Cabernet Sauvignon adding body and structure to this dry, robust and made for a grilled steak or beef bourgignon. Lots of smoky, spiced plum, savoury herbs and cassis flavours on the palate. Tannins are firm.
