Château Malbat Red Bordeaux Blend Bordeaux Contrôlée 2010

Member Review by tommyvino:

A blend of 70% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc. A deep purple red color with moderate nose of black cherry, plum, red currants, and a bit of baking spice. The palate has lots of ripe berry flavors, herbs, and a nice minerality. Dry, medium heavy bodied, with tart acidity, medium soft tannins, and a long juicy finish. Not too complex but very typical Bordeaux flavors at a very atypical price of $15 US. A great buy if your looking for value in Bordeaux so pick up a bottle and drink now because who needs to wait 20 years before it's ready, besides you may not last 20. 4/5

This 2006 Chateau Malbat Bordeaux is a relatively inexpensive French Bordeaux. I decided to buy it as I was curious what a $15 Bordeaux got you these days. After drinking a bottle I have to say that I'm not entirely sure as I'm not a huge fan of Merlot and this wine is 95% Merlot. It is definitely different than the average California Merlot. It has a definite "funky" aroma when I first tipped it back for the first sip. I could not really taste any berries or fruit. It had that minerality I usually perceive in white wines. The over all body of the wine was fairly light. It was low in acid and low in alcohol. The color was brickish. I noticed from other reviews on the internet that the same vintage has different blends. You might have better luck with a bottle with more Cabernet Sauvignon.
