Tasting Notes

It is a classic Bordeaux Rouge from Pessac-Léognan, fragrant, full of black fruit flavours & silky in texture. For 2010 it's 60% Cabernet Sauvignon & 40% Merlot


Producer's Notes

"Deep red ruby color. Intense nose of red berries (blackcurrant, blueberry and cherries) and gingerbread. Spice and liquorice on the palate with elegant and well-ripened tannins, refined oak aromas and a smoky note on the finish. Impressive length. This wine can be aged for many years."

Awards

88 - 90 points     RobertParker.com     May 2011
"A potentially outstanding effort from this forgotten estate in Pessac-Leognan, the 2010 De France offers up notes of barbecue smoke, roasted herbs, black currants and sweet black cherries. A sleeper of the vintage, the impressive aromatic display is followed by a surprisingly powerful, concentrated, medium to full-bodied wine that should drink nicely for 15 or more years."

"Dark glowing crimson. Savoury, appetising and sleek on the nose. Very seductive and silky with beautifully ripe, seamless fruit and well judged tannins underneath. Sufficient though by no means excessive acidity. Very smart."

Perfect red wine for a special occasion like Christmas, this red  wine is classic Left Bank Bordeaux, a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Considered the finest wines of Haut-Medoc red Pessac Leognan are fragrant red wines; this one has a lovely silky texture & ripe black fruit flavours
