Blaye Côtes de Bordeaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2018

Solicantus 2018. This wine is made by Namratha Prasanth, a strong Indian woman with a very touching life story (check www.solicantus.fr). From the Blaye Côtes de Bordeaux region. A blend of 90% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Malbec, aged 18 months in French oak. Brilliant deep red with purplish rim. Gorgeous nose with raspberry, black cherry, flowers, cedar and the most subtle hint of vanilla. In the mouth it is very elegant with layers of red and black fruit, fresh acidity, silky tannin and perfectly integrated oak. The high alcohol (abv 14,5%) goes unnoticed. Impressive length too. This is a spectacular effort from a new kid on the block that tastes more like a Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classé than a Blaye. Well worth the 20 euros price tag. Try to find a rare bottle (4000 bottles, there will be more from the 2019 vintage). Very impressive. — a month ago

Côtes De Blaye Merlot Blend 2017

Plummy and almost a little smoky. Love the texture. It became a much softer wine after aerating, and on the second day had lost most of its bite. — 18 days ago
