Wine Of The Week: A Bordeaux Supérieur

Wine Of The Week: A Bordeaux Supérieur | Planet Bordeaux - The Heart & Soul of Bordeaux | Scoop.it
There is much more to the Bordeaux wine region than the select, highly sought-after classified growths (known as Grand Crus). Most of the fuss and attention are directed towards very expensive wines that require decades of aging to reach potential.
Planet Bordeaux's insight:

Château Roc de Levraut 2010 has been chosen as the wine of the week on forbes.com! You'll also find three other Bordeaux AOC wines in this article written by Katie Kelly Bell.

Planet Bordeaux: Chateau Roc de Levraut rouge, Bordeaux Superieur, 2010

Planet Bordeaux: Chateau Roc de Levraut rouge, Bordeaux Superieur, 2010 | Planet Bordeaux - The Heart & Soul of Bordeaux | Scoop.it

“A beneficial blend of 50% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc, and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2010 is in the classic structured style that shows red and black fruit, a touch of cassis, that mixture of dark berry and sage-like herbal musk so prevalent in Bordeaux reds, and a lovely plump blueberry from the Cabernet Franc. The tannins are noticeable, but don’t dominate the wine, suggesting instead that there will likely be a few years of aging capacity here.”
