Château Falfas, 2014 Côtes de Bourg, Château Falfas
55% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc, 10% Côt (Malbec)
This is the flagship wine of the estate. 35 year old vines and barrel-aged 11-14 months in 1/3 new oak. Classic styled Bordeaux with dark, dense berry fruit and notes of chocolate and coffee. Good structure and complexity. Drinks well young, but prefers 3-8 years of aging to bring out the true potential of the wine.
