Clarendelle Rouge France Bordeaux-Bordeaux Merlot 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Clarendelle red seeks its inspiration in the quality, elegance and harmony of the Domaine Clarence Dillon family of wines. The wine seeks not power but rather balance. This philosophy aims to reflect the excellence and tradition of its heritage. The character and subtle structure of Clarendelle red comes from the assemblage , a rigorous selection of Bordeaux's three traditional red grapes varietals. The art of assemblage consist of blending the quality and characteristics of each grape varietal in order to make up a harmonious wine, thereby determining the style of the future Clarendelle red. The proportion of each grape will vary according to the vintage. The Merlot is first to ripen and enjoys a natural softness. It provides the wine with a beautiful deep purple color. This mantle cloaks a soft velvety roundness which one could say provides the body of this assemblage. The Cabernet Sauvignon, later-ripening varietals, provides both the freshness and armature for the wine thereby bringing with it refinement and structure but also a greater potential for aging. The Cabernet Franc offers a deep color and subtle floral aromas, an extra elegance or even a soul to our wine.
