Food Pairings for Chateau Lafaye Premieres Cotes de Blaye
External Reviews for Chateau Lafaye Premieres Cotes de Blaye
The family-owned château is one of the overachieving estates in the Première Côtes de Blaye, a right bank appellation that excelled in the super 2005 vintage. At 45-years-old the family's vines are much older than the regional average … and in 2005, these prized heirlooms yielded even richer, deeper flavors than usual. Patient ageing in top quality new French oak barriques gave yet further depth and complexity. Deep ruby, with enticing berry aromas and layers of sumptuous redcurrant and blackberry. Don't miss this seriously good, affordable Bordeaux. Wine Advocate Vintage Rating: 99 <small>not sponsored by or affiliated with The Wine Spectator or The Wine Advocate</></small><small>
