Ch. bousquet Graves red 2019
The Château Bousquet Graves Rouge 2019 is a red wine from the Graves region in Bordeaux, France. This wine is a blend of three varietals: Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Cabernet Franc. The composition of the blend is 50% Merlot, which offers a plump and juicy character, 35% Cabernet Franc, contributing to the wine's aromatic complexity and structure, and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, adding depth and tannic backbon. The wine is aged in oak barrels for 12 months, a process that likely imparts additional layers of flavor and complexity, such as subtle oak nuances and a more rounded mouthfeel. This aging process also contributes to the wine's intense and pronounced garnet red color, which is indicative of its richness and depth. While specific tasting notes for the 2019 vintage were not available, the blend's composition and winemaking process suggest that it likely offers a harmonious balance between the soft and fruity characteristics of Merlot, the elegance and spice of Cabernet Franc, and the robustness and structure of Cabernet Sauvignon. This combination typically results in a wine that is both complex and approachable, suitable for a variety of occasions and pairings. The Château Bousquet Graves Rouge 2019 is a reflection of the Graves region's ability to produce red wines that are both expressive and balanced.
