This 100% Merlot wine from Château Couronneau, an estate certified organically and biodynamically since 2009 and 2011 respectively, is a fun full-bodied Bordeaux. With a bouquet of ripe plums, blackberries, dark cherries, violet, and vanilla cream notes, the wine reminds me of summer times in the South of France when I was a child. On the palate, the wine has a beautiful density with good acidity and firm tannin. A great value, this wine will be the perfect companion to any barbecued meat or a classic steak and frites.
This wine comes from a very dynamic and forward-thinking estate that's one of the critics favourites.
It has wonderfully ripe black summer fruits from the merlot grape, whilst barrel ageing gives it a creamy texture and sweet attack on the palate.
