Les Hauts de Legarde Bordeaux Rouge- 2014


Ruby black color. Rich, fruity, earthy savory aromas of black currant, pencil shaving, cigar box, and roasted cashews with an bright, dry medium-to-full body and a smooth, complex, medium-long black currant, cherry toffee, toasted nuts, and coffee finish with medium, chewy tannins and moderate oak. Layers of coffee, cigar box and rich earth balance with classic Bordeaux pencil shavings and currants, all wrapped up with lightly chewy and well-integrated tannins.

Bordeaux reds are made from as many as five red varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc and Malbec (although this last variety is rarely used in Bordeaux these days). While the classified chateaux form the Haut-Medoc are the most famous - and expensive - red wines from Bordeaux, there are several others produced in the region. Cru Bourgeois are excellent wines that are not as celebrated as the top wines of the region, but are fine values and are wines that can drink well for up to a decade. - See more at: http://www.tastings.com/Wine-Review/Les-Hauts-de-Lagarde-2014-Bordeaux-Rouge-France-11-05-2015.aspx#sthash.fXOuD6P5.dpuf
