Château de Ricaud, Bordeaux Supérieur
Origin: Blaye, Cotes de Bordeaux, France
Blend: merlot (90%), cabernet sauvignon (7%),cabernet franc (3%)
Producer's Notes: Attractive, deep ruby-red. Highly perfumed on the nose, exuding notes of fresh red berries (strawberries) and black cherries. Supple, the palate is round retaining a lovely balance as it evolves in a fruity refreshing bouquet. A long aromatic finish concludes a tasting of a very pleasant wine in its youth.
