2010 Les Tourelles de Longueville Pauillac Bordeaux
This wine goes through pre-fermentation cold maceration for 4-6 days until traditional verification takes place in stainless steel vats for 20 days. Aged in oak barrels for 13 months.
60% Merlot, 40% Cabernet-Sauvignon
Purplish, almost opaque color. Fresh, clearly-defined bouquet reveals mild spicy scenets along with cocoa and blackberry. The sensation on the palate is silky and full, although not to excess, with an elegant, subtle patina. Overall impression is that of a harmonious wine full of charm, brimming over with lovely crisp fruit.
