Bordeaux – French – 2014
As it turns out I am developing a taste for Bordeaux.
Before I continue some Bordeaux information, it is a mix between the Merlot and the Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. In the area of Bordeaux, there is a river, usually one of the grapes grows from one side of the river and the other on the other side. The “Bordeaux” denomination refers to the area in France, and only the ones that come from this area can be called “Bordeaux”. Very similar to “Champagne”.
The reason I am writing this, it is because it is stated in this wine’s label.
This is a serious wine, not to be taken lightly, although it is not very sour, it is high in tannin.
Fruitiness: 3.4 /5
Sourness : 1.5 /5
Tannin: 4.3 /5
Body: 5 /10
[Note: Fruitiness, sourness and tannin, are a red wine characteristics, they do not define the quality of a wine]
