Ruby red. Nose and palate: plum, blackcurrant, oak, little green bell pepper. Medium bodied. The structure of this wine with its acidity and tannins (both fruit and from the oak) are dominating, but for me, it still is elegant. Rather good length. Drink now or save. 75% Merlot, 20% Cabernet sauvignon, 5 % Cabernet franc. 13,5 % abv

A classical Bordeaux blend at much lower price, as it comes from the lesser known AC Premières Côtes de Blaye. Internet: www.chateau-haut-canteloup.com

Goes well with all the dark meats, of course (on bottle it even says 'goes with any food(!)(?)').
We enjoyed it with a wonderful roast of beef with a delicious sauce, that I hade made entirely from pure ingredients (so: no soy sauce or fond or else what...)

A nice Sunday-before-Christmas.
