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.

Good Value, High Quality Bordeaux Wine: Chateau Roc de Segur | Bordeaux Undiscovered – Nick's Blog

Good Value, High Quality Bordeaux Wine: Chateau Roc de Segur | Bordeaux Undiscovered – Nick's Blog | Planet Bordeaux - The Heart & Soul of Bordeaux | Scoop.it

It has flavours of rich blackberry cassis, ripe raspberries, cedar and spice with a hint of black cherry, herbs and earthiness. The tannins are velvety and supple; the wine is very well balanced and has a lovely long finish. Roc de Segur is an excellent food wine that pairs brilliantly with roast duck, venison, pheasant, lamb, beef and rich casseroles.

A great wine review from bordeaux-undiscovered.co.uk
