Producer: Chateau La Plaige
Château La Plaige sits on a hillside overlooking the river Dordogne on the eastern edge of the Bordeaux appellation. The combination of clay and limestone in the soil means that the owner Frédéric Naud can make a wine that is powerful and elegant at the same time.
It's a blend of 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon in the superb 2016 vintage.
From the amazing 2016 vintage, this is a delicious Bordeaux wine with mouth filling ripe red berried fruit flavors of cassis, blackberry, dark cherry, vanilla and spice. Layers of ripe fruit on the palate with a long lingering finish. Excellent Value
