2012 Chateau La Gorce, Cru Bourgeois, Medoc, Bordeaux, France
An award winning, rich, savoury, classic, full-bodied red wine with blackcurrant, vanilla spice and liquorice notes, followed by a long, satisfying finish. Highly recommended.

Château La Gorce is run by the Fabre family who have made fabulous wines here since 1980. There are 45 hectares of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. For the Cru Bourgeois 55% Merlot and 45% Cabernet Sauvignon are combined to form a classic Médoc. Only the best grapes selected from oldest vines make it into the Cru which is then aged for 12-18 months in oak.
13.50% ABV. Perfect to pair with red meats, game and mature cheeses.
