Here’s a red that punches well above its weight, giving everyday Bordeaux rouge a good name. It’s made mostly from Merlot, which is the biggest grape in terms of plantings in the Bordeaux region, so this wine tastes smooth and fruity with a hint of spice and savouriness on the finish. Good value. - 3.5 Stars, Joelle Thomson, Wine Writer (2017 vintage)
Is roast on the menu tonight? If so, Chateau Alexandre should be too! Its medium-full bodied, well rounded and its subtle black and red fruit aromas make it a match made in heaven for any roast. The vineyards are in the Entre- Deux-Mers region on a sunny hillside overlooking the area. While everything is kept traditional in terms of vineyard management, there’s been some modernisation in the cellars allowing the wines to age for longer. Its equal parts Cab Sauv and Merlot, with a small amount of Malbec and Carmenere for body and spice. Try it today or keep for a few more years.
Serve with roasted chicken, grilled lamb, rabbit stew or cheese.
