Comte de Gironde, AOC Bordeaux, Bordeaux, France, 2020
Comte de Gironde has been crafted by a skilled team who strive to nurture the very essence of the Entre-deux-Mers region in their wines.
The beautiful old winery has been recently renovated, bringing modernity to the vinification process and working in harmony with tradition, in this most famous and classic of French wine-growing regions.
Soils are predominantly clay and limestone, which is typical for the region.
Modern vinification facilities enable the production of classically styled Bordeaux. Vinification and ageing are carried out in stainless steel resulting in an authentic yet supple wine.
No oak ageing
A charming, fruity Merlot-dominated blend, with defined blackberry fruit, lifted, lighter red berry notes on the palate and a finish with great harmony, balance and lovely supple tannins. Drinking at its best 5-8 years from vintage.
Versatile and reassuring, with sufficient class to match roast meat, or serve with root vegetable gratin, bread and a green salad.
Cabernet Franc 10%
Cabernet Sauvignon 10%
