A full bodied and complex Bordeaux from the east bank, a blend of 60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet and 10% Cabernet Franc. Well balanced and sophisticated palate with silky fruits of damson and cassis. Oak aging lends it spice, cedar and a touch of vanilla on a long and persistent finish.
Chateau des Combes Saint Emillion, Bordeaux. France
Varietal(s): Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc
Vieux Chateaux des Combes is located in Saint-Christophe-desBardes, just five kilometers away from the historic village of SaintEmilion. Its name suggests some wine was produced here in the 17th century when the Benedictine abbey was built and vines were planted, scattered around the buildings, growing on little hills and valleys, known as combes.
