Chateau Laujac 2014, Medoc

RM125.60

Cru Bourgeois

Size: 750 ml

Grape Variety:

60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot

Tasting Notes:

The colour evolves from ruby to garnet then to light-brick over the years but the brilliance and intensity will remain. This is a dense wine with a bouquet of blackcurrant and blueberry. In the mouth, the first impression is straightforward yet delicate. The fine tannins melt into the body of the wine thus giving an excellent structure that ensures good keeping potential. It will therefore improve over the years for greater appreciation with maturity.

Food Pairing:

Serve with pike-perch in red wine, duck breast with cranberries or a joint of beef with mushroom sauce.

Serving temperature : Enjoy at 16° – 18°

Critic Reviews:
