Ch. toutigeac Bordeaux red 2019


The Château Toutigeac Bordeaux Red 2019 is a delightful blend composed of 50% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Franc, and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon. It presents itself as soft and round at the first sip, medium-bodied, with excellent balance. The palate enjoys classic flavors of cassis, black cherry, and raspberry, complemented by notes of mint, licorice, and an undertone of red currant. The tannins are described as smooth, stylish, and silky, offering a lot of pleasure for its price. The grapes used in this wine are selected for their distinct qualities: Merlot for roundness and elegance, Cabernet Franc for red fruit flavors, and Cabernet Sauvignon for power and tannin structure. The harvest occurs from the end of September to mid-October, with careful plot management. The vinification process includes vatting in stainless steel vats at controlled temperatures and aging in subterranean, glassed vats. This wine, with its red-purple color and matured red fruit flavors, is recommended to be enjoyed with grilled meats, cheeses, and exotic cuisine.
