Chateau Moulin de Mallet, Bordeaux Rouge, Bordeaux, France 2019
90% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc
FORESTY BLACKBERRY & PLUM, ROASTED CACAO, SAVORY HERB
Hailing from the southeastern-most reaches of Bordeaux, this captivating value is a bit like mana from the heavens for those of us who don’t drink Bordeaux as often as we’d like because of how expensive it’s become. This blend displays the chocolatey, coffee-like qualities that Merlot from this region famously does, and invites us to hang out as often as we like, palling around for conversation or dinner as our weeknights or weekends may unfold. So good!
Serving Suggestion: BBQ beef; burgers & fries. Mashed potatoes w/ shiitake mushroom gravy & scallions. Smoked cheeses.
