2010 La Courolle, Montagne-St-Émilion

SKU #1149158

Chateau La Courolle is located in the Right Bank commune of Montagne, northeast of Saint-Émilion, where its AOC (established in 1936) enjoys status as one of the Saint-Émilion 'satellite' appellations. Only red wines are produced here, and though the five main Bordeaux varietals are cultivated, the dominant varietal is Merlot. For Chateau la Couroulle, production is based almost exclusively on Merlot, with a little Cabernet Franc blended in. Harvest is done entirely by hand, and the wine is raised in French oak. It offers lovely plum and red berry fruit aromas and flavors, with notes of flowering herb, vanilla and sweet spice. It is round and smooth, full in the mouth, with a lingering finish. Versatile at table, this delightful Bordeaux can be enjoyed with a variety of foods, from red meats to roast chicken or pasta with tomato sauce.

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Merlot

- A very popular red grape variety found in the great wines of St. Emilion and Pomerol. It is the most planted variety in Bordeaux, and it has also become an extremely fashionable red in many regions including California. Although it has a reputation to be smooth, and easy to drink when young, Merlot is also capable of producing extremely intense wines as well. It is often used as a blending agent with Cabernet Sauvignon.
Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
