Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc
75cl * 13.5% ABV * Pauillac, Bordeaux
The 2015 Reserve de la Comtesse is a blend of 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot. One of the most reliable of the second wines, this has a very fine, sophisticated and pure bouquet with black cherries, cedar and violet aromas, perfumed and sensual. The palate is medium-bodied with supple, rounded tannin that is cloaked by layers of tobacco-tinged black fruit that segues into a long, lightly spiced finish. Drink alongside rib of beef.
