Tire Pe Diem Bordeaux Rouge 2016
Bordeaux seems dead serious and very expensive—until you try this fresh & lively, certified organic version made by husband and wife, David and Hélène Barrault. 95% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, organically grown. The wine is aged for eighteen months in concrete tanks and bottled without systematic filtration. Tasting Note: Deep ruby in the glass with red currant, blackberry, bramble and pounded stones. Ripe red and black fruit dominates the palate that gets a nice boost from the wines natural acidity. This is a buoyant and easy drinking red that finishes with light tannins. Pair with grilled beef or lamb, pork loin, grilled ham, roasted vegetables and lighter cheeses.
