2015 Jouanin, Cotes de Castillon

SKU #1316263

Thank the emerging region of Cotes de Castillon for this spectacular deal in red Bordeaux from the well-balanced 2015 vintage. This cuvee shares many qualities of top-flight St-Emilion, with a great sweetness of fruit along with vanilla and spicy notes from new oak. Everyone who loves wine knows, it is hard to find a steal in Bordeaux these days, but this wine offers a lot of wine for the money, with layers of lush up-front black and red fruit characteristics, cellar-able, too, over the short term.

A very approachable wine that's a pleasure to drink.The Merlot fruit delivers its plums flavors and floral violet aromatics. Soft tannins and a delicious sweet core. Perfect for enjoying on any night.

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.
