Château Marjosse 2016
Bordeaux is the largest wine-producing region in France. It consists of two major areas—the Left and the Right Bank. Both lie in the heart of the Gironde estuary and are further divided by its tributaries, the Garonne and the Dordogne rivers.
Bordeaux reds tend to be lower in alcohol and are slightly lighter in body.
Stylistically, they exhibit more nuanced flavors and less up-front fruit. Sophisticated and elegant, they pair well with game meats, roast lamb, or hearty beef stews.
When shopping for Bordeaux reds, keep in mind, French wines are all about the region and the blend, not about individual grape varieties.
Château Marjosse produces red wine from Bordeaux based on merlot, malbec, cabernet sauvignon, and cabernet franc of 2016. Château Marjosse 2016 has a bright ruby red, the nose dominated by red cherry fruit. On the palate, a pleasant sweetness of ripe fruit combined with a density of smooth, round, and tasty tannins, high density, a beautiful freshness. The finish is pleasant and of average length.
