K&L Notes

We have very few Côtes de Bourg wines at K&L. We found this one on our 2012 Bordeaux trip and loved it. Lucie and Stephane Donze have fashioned a delicious blackberry fruit flavored red. It is primarily Merlot with some Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend. 40-year-old vines are responsible for some of the depth of flavor here.

From the heart of the Côtes de Bourg on the Right Bank of the Gironde River comes the 2009 Chateau Martinat. The blend is 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 10% Malbec. This is a big, full-bodied red wine, impossibly huge with surprising weight and a rich, velvety texture. Ripe, mouth filling fruit reminiscent of a freshly baked plum tart. Fresh, lively, and balanced with fine tannins. Drink now or over the next 5 years.

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.
