Bordeaux raised up as old school Rioja.
25% Cab Franc, 25% Cab Sav, 30% Red Stem Merlot*, 20% Petit Verdot.
Very interesting indeed.
N: Dark chocolate, leather with buried cassis. On the nose it’s big, but it’s only 12.5°
P: Black Cherries, bitter chocolate, brambles, cassis, tiny blueberries, very refreshing acidity and well integrated tannins.

2015 Secret Château La Rose Bellevue, Blaye. A small 100% production from one old vine plot in Saint-Palais that is only produced in exceptional years. Deep red colour. Intense perfume with strawberry marmelade, subtle spices and a delicate touch of oak. Concentrated, with layers of fruit, impeccable balance and a long finish. Another proof of the potential for great wines in Blaye. Highly recommended. — 5 days ago

2009 vintage. This is the entry level of this estate and it is absolutely amazing. Pomerol-like nose with truffle and red fruit. Medium-bodied, elegant and balanced with a velvety texture and good length. Incredibile value. — 2 hours ago
