Ch. La Coudraie Bordeaux 2014

Merlot from France - Bordeaux
Review Date : 11-Jan-2016
Dark, deep, ruby-red colour, with purple hues, lighter on the rim. The nose is softly full with harmoniously packed aromas of ripe dark-red plum fruit entwined with black and dark red berry elements and a little resinous detail. Medium-full bodied, this palate features an up-front and softly concentrated core of sweet redcurrant and red plum fruit flavours. The fruit sweetness is balanced by grainy tannin extraction, structure and grip, and the mouthfeel enlivened good acid freshness. The firm core and palate line carries the wine to a long, lingering dry finish with redcurrant and herbal notes. This is a moderately concentrated Merlot-based Bordeaux red with redcurrant and plummy fruit and a grainy, structured palate. Match with roasted beef and lamb dishes over the next 3-4+ years. 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc, fermented to 13.5% alc. From Soussac. 16.5/20 Jan 2016 RRP $21.90
