Wine Notes

Maison Sichel. Cru Bourgeois.Indicative blend: 50% Merlot, 47% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Petit Verdot

Tasting note: Deep, young colour. Clean, relatively elegant nose with fruity, woody accents, spicy notes after swirling. The attack is reasonably melted, leading into a relatively powerful mid palate. Oak ageing is still notable on the finish. Great potential. (27-Oct-2009) [Gilbert & Gaillard]

Grape Variety: Bordeaux Blend Red

A Bordeaux Blend, at its most basic, is any combination of those grape varieties typically used to make the red wines of Bordeaux.

Far from being an officially defined or legal term, it is almost never used for wine-labeling purposes (although it occasionally appears on back labels). Its equivalent in the United States is Meritage, which is not only legally defined, but also a registered trademark.
