Food Pairings for Chateau de Launay Bordeaux Superieur Red
Since living in Seattle and learning to love the many Bordeaux blends from the Columbia Valley, the nose on this wine hit me with a definite sense of familiarity. A blend of around 90% merlot, and the balance cabernet, this wine exudes aromas earth and leather with just a hint of dark coffee. As for taste, it's a medium body, and really quite dry, as to be expected from a true French bordeaux, with hints of cherry, tobacco and cassis. This is the type of wine where the nose adds so much to the taste, that it should not be consumed with any sort of nasal congestion! Overall a wonderful blend, a wine I could spend hours on a porch enjoying on a spring afternoon.
“A seductive winner! Notes of dark black fruit, chocolate and sweet spice linger on the finish of this Bordeaux classic from the stellar 2005 vintage.”
