Chateau des Mille Anges 2016
Brilliant deep purple in color. On the nose this wine reveals red fruit aromas with notes of mocha and cashews. Round, full and well balanced on the palate with silky tannins and spicy notes. The finish is long, well balanced with fruity flavors, spicy and light oak.
In most of France, wines are named by their place of origin and not by the type of grape (with the exception of Alsace). Just like a red Burgundy is by law, always made of Pinot noir, a red Bordeaux is a blended wine composed mainly of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Depending on the laws of the village from which the grapes come, the conditions of the vintage and decisions of the winemaker, the blend can be further supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Petit Verdot and in rare cases, Carmenere. So popular and repeated has this mix of grape varieties become worldwide, that the term, Bordeaux Blend, refers to a wine blended in this style, regardless of origin.
