Ch. Lamothe Vincent Bordeaux 2015

Blended Red from France - Bordeaux
Review Date : 29-Aug-2017
Dark, deep, black-hued red with slight purple hues on the edge, youthful in appearance. The nose is soft and elegantly concentrated with ripe aromas of dark-red and black plum fruit entwined with subtle blackcurrant and herb notes. This has good depth and unfolds lifted florals. Medium-full bodied, the palate is rich, sweet and juicy with up-front, primary fruit flavours of dark-red plums and redcurrants, with red liquorice notes. The fruit forms a rounded, but concentrated heart, and the mouthfeel is enlivened by soft, fresh acidity. Soft-textured, supple tannins underline the fruit and the wine carries to a well-packed, lingering finish. This is an elegantly concentrated, sweet and juicy, primary-fruited Bordeaux red with dark-red and black plum fruit on a supple palate. Serve with lamb and beef over the next 3-4 years. A blend of 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon fermented to 14.0% alc., the wine aged 9 months on lees in stainless-steel vats and oak barrel. 160,000 bottles made. 17.0+/20 Aug 2017 RRP $19.99
