Château Cap Saint-Martin

Cuvée Prestige Premières Côtes de Blaye Merlot Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Vintage 2015 / Mostly #merlot from selected plots in the 22 ha vineyard, with #cabernetsauvignon. Yesterday the regular cuvee was more pleasant with frivolous red fruit. Today after 24 hours aeration the bouquet of this wine is more open: pleasant spicyness and impression of cherries and plums. The cedar smell of sigarboxes. And my God such a velvety taste, roundness in excelsis! This wine has potential to be cellared but it’s super seductive now. #blaye #bordeaux Partnered it with dry aged entrecote, forest mushrooms and red wine sauce. — a year ago

Premières Côtes de Blaye Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

Vintage2015 / what a seductive smell... even so young... most merlot, cabernet sauvignon... clay and limestone soil... 50 km away north of the city of Bordeaux. Pierre Ardoin is an oenologist at the University. Seductive red fruits in smell. An impression of plums. Vibrant and velvety taste. No need to cellar 😉 when the wine is so good at the moment. #blaye #bordeaux Tasted with a pasta porcini. Good combination. — a year ago
