Château Argadens Bordeaux Supérieur 2016

Bordeaux, FranceArgadens red is a modern Bordeaux based on the concentration of fruit with a supple, balanced texture. The vineyard average age is now over 30 years old, and its planted to merlot, cabernet sauvignon and cabernet franc sitting on clay-limestone soil in a single plot. The site is the highest among the rolling hills of the Entre-Deux-Mers. The blend is 63/32/5 merlot / cabernet sauvignon / cabernet franc, almost mirroring plantings in the vineyard. The nose is harmonious, expressing dark fruits with well-integrated oak at this stage. Indeed, it is a wine you can age for five to ten years. It’s not Palmer or d’Angludet but there are similarities in style.
