Wine Tasting Note: Le Roc du du Chateau Pellebouc, 2006, Bordeaux, France
Stockist: Bordeaux Undiscovered Price: £8.75 [More on Adegga / Snooth]
Smooth, rounded, nicely textured. A blend of Merlot (90%) 'for its roundness and balance' plus a little Cabernet Sauvignon (10%) 'to add to the body'. Deeply coloured with flavours of red fruits plus hints of spice. None of that tart, hollow, dusty-dryness you can find in cheaper Bordeaux reds - this has good fruit, a firm structure and lends itself nicely to the food in question; very nicely in fact.
