Chateau Guillebot Plaisance 2011


I've had a few good AOC Bordeaux wines lately.  Historically my rummaging in this category has mostly turned up, well, nothing much worth drinking to be honest.  This one though is a good value priced find.  A blend of 80% merlot and 20% cabernet sauvignon, it has aromatics of earth, dark plums, spice and blackcurrant.  The palate is balanced with flavours reminding of blackcurrant and plum.  A good value wine.

Rating: Good, Abv: 13%, Price: $18.50, Source: sample, Vendors: http://www.discovervin.com.au, Website: n/a, Tasted: 2014
