Food Pairings for Chateau Tour de Bessan Margaux
This wine certainly does not disappoint! It's still quite young (6 years old is merely a babe when it comes to Margaux, and this one will age nicely for the next 20 years), and aleady it's very dry. In the nose it has a wondeful hint of leather and earth with the faintest hint of cassis. It has a lightness, yet a rich, velvelty mouthfeel, with a taste of spice that really lets the gravelly terroir of margaux shine through. With every sip, the wine exhibits more complexity, with a long, smooth finish. In my mind, this wine would complement almost any meal, as it does not over power, but simply expresses itself in an understated way as only a fine bordeaux can. Even more importantly, this wine is great all by itself, as I relax and enjoy it, bringing back memories of Paris. It's really almost impossible to describe how different a fine French bordeax can feel and taste, particularly if you are used to the big bold cabs of Napa Valley, or even the more fruit forward bordeaux blends of the Columbia Valley in Washington. A fine bordeaux is in a class by itself, and thankfully, a benefit of the great recession is that many of these great wines are even more affordable than ever, with this wine recently coming down in price from $44 to only $34, and well worth every penny! Now I just need to grab a bit of nicely aged cheese and finish enjoying my afternoon with this wine. À votre santé!
