Château Meillac Bordeaux 2012


Château Meillac is situated in Fronsac, and the 2012 vintage is a merlot dominant blend, together with some cabernet franc and cabernet sauvignon.  The proportions are 85%, 12% and 3% respectively.  In the glass, it presents a very typical of Bordeaux from with merlot driven red berry and redcurrant aromatics.  The palate is well balanced, medium bodied and has raspberry red fruit characters.  At a little over $30, this is a good value Bordeaux choice.  (Alc: 13.5%, Region: Bordeaux, Rating: Good, Would I buy it based on this tasting?
