Chateau les Maurins 2020 Bordeaux


This is another bargain buy from Aldi supermarkets; a a very quaffable medium-bodied Bordeaux for under a tenner. This is a classic blend of 60% merlot, 30% cabernet sauvignon and 10% cabernet franc from the Entre-Deux-Mers appellation. There are some dark blackberry and blackcurrant fruit notes here but also some attractive savoury/leafy hints. The finish is soft and smooth and it paired brilliantly with a roast lamb en croute. Remarkable value. $9.99.
