Chateau Chataigniere 2012

Member Review by duncan 906:

I attended a wedding at the weekend where this wine was served with the meal. It is an AOC Bordeaux from the negociant house of Calvet but I have been unable to find out much more about it. There was some blackcurrant and plum style fruit there but it was fairly tannic so perhaps it could do with some more bottle age. It is far from being one of the better wines I have tasted and nothing to write home about so I have given it only two and a half points.

Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Coconut Rice Sweet Potato Cheesecake

RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
