Girolate Red Bordeaux Blend Bordeaux Contrôlée 2001

Member Review by Rodolphe Boulanger:

A developed fruit nose. Spice and dark fruit. Ok oak integration. A very good first example, but the 2005 that I tasted at the same time showed a lot more potential.

A product of the over-achieving Despagne family, this 100% Merlot cuvee, which was actually fermented in small barrels and made from a tiny plot of 10,000 vines per hectare (versus the normal 5,000 to 6,000) is a tour de force in winemaking. Black pu... Robert Parker. A Merlot wine from Bordeaux in France. 2001 Girolate 750ml
