Garnet black color. Complex aromas and flavors of red pepper jelly, rose, olives, earthy forest berries, cocoa powder, and caramel-drizzled plums with a slightly chewy, vibrant, dry medium body and a tingling, subtle, medium-long finish with moderate oak flavor. Alluring aromatics pull you into this bright and meal-elevating Côtes de Bordeaux; drink now or cellar.

Blaye Cotes de Bordeaux

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).
