L'Aventure Optimus 2014
Assertive aromas of cola nut and bright cherry fruit, as well as coco and mineral notes. A wave of lush fruit attacks the palate, with cherry and blueberry underpinned by leather and a peppery zest. A very juicy mouth feel, well structured, with good acidity and a well integrated finish of soft tannin and French oak. This wine will drink very well in its youth. Made with 55% Syrah, 27% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Petit Verdot. Grown, produced, and bottled by Stephan Vineyards, established in 1998 by Stephan Asseo. He began making wine in 1982 and founded Domaine Courteillac in Bordeaux in that same year. Stephan and his family later purchased Chateau Fleur Cardinal and Chateau Robin in Castillon - Cotes de Bordeaux. However, his true desire was to be more innovative than AOC law would allow. So in 1996, this led him on a quest for a great terroir where he could pursue his ideal as a winemaker.
