Chateau le Ferreau Belair Cotes de Bourg 2010

Member Review by duncan 906:

I bought this bottle of wine from a shop in London's Kensington [www.thesampler.co.uk ]Cotes de Bourg is an AOC created in 1936 although there is a record of winemaking in the area as long ago as the 2nd century AD, from a large area of 15 communes around the small town of Bourg-sur-Gironde.This is located on the east or right bank of the Dordogne river close to the confluence with the Garonne. Chateau Plaisance was bought by Alain Faure, who also owns a number of other properties in the area, in 2004 and this is the second wine. It is a blend of 60% merlot,30% cabernet sauvignon and 10% malbec and is aged for two years in used oak barrels. I had it with the Sunday lunch of lamb shanks. There is plenty of a blackcurrant and plum style fruit and the tannins were soft but held things together nicely.Overall I would say this is just what a good claret should be.It got a gold medal at the 2012 International wine competition in Lyon
