Wine "Chateau de Gourgues", Bordeaux AOC, 2010
Reviews of purchase "Chateau de Gourgues", Bordeaux AOC, 2010
The taste of wine is harmonious, balanced, with light notes of spices.
Surprisingly outdoor aroma of the wine combines mineral notes with hints of dried flowers and almonds.
The wine goes well with red meat, poultry and veal dishes.
