Château La Favière 2009 - Bordeaux Supérieur - rouge
From the Saint-Seurin-sur-l'Isle in Gironde, near the borders of Saint-Emilion. Intense amber-colored robe. Nose of ripe red berries, blackcurrant, gooseberry and blackberry with a slight hint of truffle and underwood. The attack is suave and reveals an ample structure, enhanced by smoky and woody notes that transcend into a nice complexity. Goes well with a burger and fries in duck grease, braised lamb with ceps, prime rib in Béarnaise sauce, Bordeaux-style ceps or stuffed eggplant. Available in prestigious wine boutiques and on www.lafaviere.
