You will love this superb Blaye Côtes de Bordeaux red 2016 Bio, it is a beautiful deep red, persistent nose, with connotations of humus and well ripe black berries, all in tannic finesse, ample and good structure. The 2015, pure Merlot, of structured mouth, of a beautiful harmony, is a wine with aromas of spices and black fruits, well balanced and generous, all in color and material, notes of undergrowth and currant on the palate, ample mouth and fondue. Excellent 2014, of sustained colour, a fleshy and fatty wine, with a complex and subtle nose at the same time, dominated by cherry, soft tannic base and very balanced. All in charm, the Bordeaux Blanc 2018, with nuances of fern and apple on the palate, is a pretty round, smooth and persistent.
