2015 Bellevue Cotes de Bordeaux-Castillon Vieilles Vignes

Producer: Chateau Bellevue
Country/Region: France - Bordeaux - Cotes de Bordeaux - Castillon AOC

The wine offers a rich and intense bouquet of blackcurrant, blackberry and strawberry. It is smooth and full in the mouth with a velvety texture. Acidity combined with firm but well-integrated tannins are a fine supporting cast to the black fruit flavors at the end.
