Ruby black color. Interesting aromas of forest berries, fallen heirloom apples, mocha fudge, incense, leaves and bark, and blackberry jam with a satiny, vibrant, dryish medium-full body and a seamless, complex, medium-long walnut, camembert, and barnyard finish. A rustic and earthy Bordeaux with savory notes stitched across the palate.

Blaye Côtes de Bordeaux wines are produced in Côtes de Blaye (also simply referred to as Blaye), a small district on the bank of the Gironde River in Bordeaux in the southwest of France. Both red and white wines are produced here from the following grapes: Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Carmenére for the reds; Ugni Blanc, Colombard, Sauvignon Blanc, and Semillon for the whites. These grapes grow in clay and limestone soils and produce light-to-medium-bodied wines meant to be enjoyed within 2-3 years for the whites (expect notes of citrus and white flowers) and up to 5 years for the reds (red spice, red fruit notes, and moderate tannins abound).
