Chateau Blouin

Chateau BlouinThis family owned and operated estate on the "Right Bank" is run by Isabelle Valbom-Nadal in the Graves de Vayres area. Here the vines are carefully tended, de-budded to control vigor, with leaf removal and cluster thinning to enhance the flavors. Both the Merlot and Cabernet Franc in this wine are vinified in both stainless steel and concrete vats using temperature control. A long and cool maceration combined with traditional fermentation are utilized and then the components are aged for 12 months in vat and then blended and bottled. This wine is 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc grown on clay, gravel, and silty soils.

The dominant Merlot grape gives this wine bright red fruits and brilliant ruby color. Hints of chocolate, earth, menthol are harmoniously combined with dark cherry, cassis and pepper notes. The medium bodied wine always gives the classic Bordeaux structure without being heavy handed or over-ripe. A true classic at an affordable price!

ridiculously good

"Always good to not have preconceptions as this was inexpensive, unassuming in presentation, and remarkably good!"

Thomas

Good - Not great - but good

"try it - if you hate it....then cook with the rest and make a nice red wine sauce. Open and let it sit for a few minutes and I liked it a little better served a tad chilled. If ice cold helps Coors, then slightly chilled will help this."
