Wine from Bordeaux, France

Chateau De Courteillac 2010, Bordeaux
 Chateau De Courteillac is a blend of 70% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 5% Cabernet Franc. Its grapes are grown on an estate in Cleyrac in the heart of the Entre-Deux-Mers region southeast of the city of Bordeaux. 
This wine is still very young, but good for drinking. 
Ruby red color, black and red  berries aroma, with a little bit of spice. Dry, light body, plum and cherries on the palate with earthy notes. Very fruity. Nicely balanced. Can age.
