Chateau la Bourree Cotes de Castillon Bordeaux France 2017Regular price $17.00
This estate on the eastern border of St. Emilion shares many of the coveted geological features of its neighbor, and is similarly able to produce elegant Merlot fruit. Aged in used barrels and then tanks before bottling, these winemakers preserve the nuanced aromatics that set this Bordeaux blend on par with more famous regions.
We get a faint, pleasant smokiness on the nose, with savory herbs and woody notes. The palate is full of ample purple fruits, balanced by bright acidity and a lingering minerality. Give up to an hour of air for best results.
smoked pork ribs w/Carolina BBQ sauce, steak & fries, grilled portabella w/romesco, garlic mushroom quinoa (vegan friendly wine)
