Domaine de Courteillac Merlot-Cabernet 2010
70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc. Nice and dark color. The attack is round, full, and very fruity. The wine is dense, rich, complex, and exuberant, with a very sweet, harmonious, and unctuous finish. Character is a little non-typical of the usual style of the property.
Courteillac benefits from a privileged location, 20 minutes south-east of Saint-Emilion and 14 km south of Castillon la Bataille, in the commune of Ruch, one of the highest plateau of the Entre 2 Mers. The soil is limestone and clay over a limestone sub-soil. A geology that isn’t without connection to the plateau of Saint-Emilion, since they share the same origin.
