2015 Haut-Médoc Cru Bourgeois (Grand Clapeau Olivier, Chateau)
Chateau Grand Clapeau Olivier, Haut-Médoc Cru Bourgeois, Bordeaux, France 201550% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot CLASSIC STYLE, GRAVEL, DARK BERRIES, RICH AND PURE The Baudiniere family's Cru Bourgeois estate is a relative newcomer by Bordeaux standards (founded in "only" 1923), but the wine made here is as classic and traditional as it comes. Neither tough and in need of years of cellaring, nor jammy and soft, this medium-bodied, restrained Cabernet/Merlot blend is a distinguished gentleman of a wine, with understated fruit and a richness that evokes the gravelly soils from which it comes. Serving suggestion: A roast leg of lamb w/ rosemary & garlic. Creamy mashed potatoes w/ black pepper & a savory gravy.
