Chateau Merlet Bordeaux 2017

13% alcohol per volume

52% Merlot 28% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Cabernet franc

Around €4 a bottle

Love the deep red with a dark purple rim.

The smell test

Intense fruity notes. Great punch in the nose of pineapple. Lite smokey notes in the background. Raisins and plums.

The taste test

Little on the acidic side but full of flavour. Some spice notes. Very dry. Slightly bitter aftertaste. This will a fantastic with barbecue smokey spare ribs. This one can handle strong food flavours.

will use this a a cooking wine as well.
