Blaye Côtes de Bordeaux, Château Frédignac La Favourite 2015

£90.00

Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon  
A graduate in environmental sciences, Vincent L’Amouller returned home to Blaye in 2011 to become the 5th generation of his family to grow vines in this special part of Bordeaux. Overlooking the Gironde estuary where it faces some of the world’s biggest names in St. Julien, this estate is now fully organic. Vincent is a true believer in minimal intervention with nature –  solar panels, rainwater capture and no synthetic chemicals!
La Favourite is Vincent’s flagship wine so the grapes come from selected parcels of old vines. A blend of 75% Merlot and 25& Cabernet Sauvignon, this is classic red Bordeaux and a regular Hachette award winner. A great advertisement for the value to be found in the underrated region of Blaye.
From the stunning 2015 vintage, this wine matures in French oak barrels for one year and is only released when ready to drink. A wonderful bouquet of ripe bkack fruits, roast coffee and spice. A well balanced integrated wine with supple tannins  and rich flavours of black cherry, baking spices and chocolate. Perfect with all grilled meats, peppery or mushroom sauces and indeed any of your favourite high flavour meals.
Guaranteed pleasure whenever you need your weekly quality Bordeaux hit!
