Chateau Meillac 2011


I taste a lot of Bordeaux and I think this wine is a particularly good find for its price.  It's a blend of 85% merlot and 12% cabernet franc, with some cabernet sauvignon filling it out (3%) from the region of Fronsac to the west of Pomerol.  It has attractive aromatics of blackcurrant, leather and cedar.  The palate is medium bodied and balanced, has good length and a depth of blackcurrant and mulberry flavours that well surpasses the wine's price point.  With some air, some fine grained tannins join in to supplement what is really quite a good wine.

Rating: Good to Very Good, Abv: 13%, Price: $26, Source: sample, Vendors: http://www.cesoirwine.com/, Website: http://www.chateau-meillac.com, Tasted: 2014
