Irouleguy Domaine Ilarria 2012

Member Review by duncan 906:

I bought this bottle of wine from a shop in Wiltshire [www.yapp.co.uk ] for £19.Irouleguy is an appellation created in 1990 [although there has been viticulture here since at least the Romans ] for red,rose and white wines from 9 communes around the village of that name located about 25 miles south-east of the town of Biaritz in the foothills of the Pyrenees close to the Spanish border.Domaine Ilarria is a small family owned organic producer in this area.My bottle consists of 55% cabernet franc, 25% cabernet sauvignon and 20% tannant.I started my bottle last night with my supper of beef stew. There is plenty of a slightly tart cherry and menthol style fruit with fairly soft tannins that gave sufficient structure.I thought this an OK wine but not one I would buy again and it is not worth £19.
