2015 La Cour d'Argent, Bordeaux (Previously $13)

SKU #1332750 90 points James Suckling

 Impressive depth and rather polished dry tannins for this humble appellation, then quite a bold, long finish. Already very attractive, but no hurry to drink this.  (2/2018)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2015 de la Cour d'Argent is medium to deep garnet-purple in color with a nose of crushed plums, mulberries and black cherries with a touch of sage. The medium-bodied mouth is firm with grippy tannins and a racy line, finishing on an herbal note. (LPB)  (2/2018)

K&L Notes

This is a Bordeaux Superior that delivers incredible quality for the price point. Winemaker Denis Barraud chooses to ferment this 100% Merlot wine in stainless steel before aging it in older oak.

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.
