Chateau Le Petit Chaban 2019
This is a fruit forward style of Bordeaux. Ruby red in color, the wine has aromas of plums, cassis and red fruits with a subtle hint of spicing in the background. On the palate, the fruit gives way to toasted oak and warm spices on the backend. The tannins are silky and well integrated.
France – the home of Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne – is arguably the world's most important wine-producing country. For centuries, it has produced wine in greater quantity – and of reportedly greater quality – than any other nation. Wine is ingrained in French culture at almost every level of society; it is the drink of both the elite and the common people, and a key symbol in Roman Catholicism, France's majority religion.
