Château de Barbe

Pourpre de Barbe 2014

Appellation : Appellation Côtes de Bourg

Grape variety : 90% merlot and 10% cabernet sauvignon.

Tasting : Complex aging notes, revealed by grilled and toasty aromas, dominate the bouquet alongside the spicy charm of vanilla together with hazelnut. At the same time a powerful impression of ripe fruit makes its presence felt. This wine is equally expressive in the mouth with a fleshy “attack” followed by good balance that contains both strength and character within a framework of good length. Le Pourpre 2014 promises both complexity and accessibility to the drinker although it is not expected to peak for a few years thanks to good cellaring potential.
