2009 Les Violettes, Côtes de Blaye

SKU #1382572

From Gilbert & Gaillard: Dress with reflections of evolution. Fine nose, ripe fruit (plum, cherry, gooseberry), presence undergrowth. The mouth seduces with its freshness. Fine texture, soft matter, melted tannins. The fruit does not miss the opportunity to reign. Pleasantly mature. (2015)

This is one of those mind-boggling discoveries you shouldn’t try to figure out how we got, because it’s going to move fast! This little Cotes de Blaye is replete with aromas of violets, plums, leather and spice. It has a very soft texture, but nice sweet fruit that is balanced nicely by acid on the back end.

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Merlot

- A very popular red grape variety found in the great wines of St. Emilion and Pomerol. It is the most planted variety in Bordeaux, and it has also become an extremely fashionable red in many regions including California. Although it has a reputation to be smooth, and easy to drink when young, Merlot is also capable of producing extremely intense wines as well. It is often used as a blending agent with Cabernet Sauvignon.
Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
