Reviews of purchase Chateau la Commanderie, Saint-Estephe Cru Bourgeois AOC, 2012
Wine rich purple color.
Taste wine silky, elegant, generous, rich, well-balanced, with hints of dark fruit, soft tannins and a long finish with menthol overtones.
Bouquet of the wine reveals expressive aromas of dark fruit, including especially noticeable shades of plum tart notes of toasted wood, chocolate and tobacco nuances.
Wine is the perfect accompaniment of dishes from red meat such as lamb confit, poultry, such as roast turkey, cheeses such as Brie.
