I picked up Château La Rose Bourdieu Bordeaux 2010 because the back label stated that it was an “organically farmed wine”. My husband and I enjoyed it along with a dinner of veggie lasagna and farmers market everything-mix salad, and continued on whilst watching a few Netflixed Boston Legal episodes. The following morning, I searched the web trying to locate winery, production and all the little interesting bits of info to include in my review, but to no avail. I contacted the importer, Metro Wine and they kindly passed on to me that the estate is a negociant property that strives to offer “well-balanced, delicious and environmentally responsible wine”.
Dark ruby-garnet in colour, aromas of cherry, chewy raisin and wet river stones curled up in the glass. Vibrant cherry, blackberry and red current flavours were supported by smooth black tea tannins in the medium body. White pepper mingled with traces of earthy tobacco in the moderate finish. Straightforward and easy drinking, this is a fantastic glass for the table.
50% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon
Enjoy now thru 2015
