Le Vieux Porche Marcillac Cuvee Lairis France 2009
Marcillac is an AOC in South West France between Bordeaux and the Rhône Valley. The main variety here is Mansois (90%), with the remainder being made up mostly of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. In this region, Mansois produces a lighter wine with good color, hints of raspberry fruit, and a pronounced aroma of ground spice and red pepper. The 2009 vintage from Costes Rouges was selected to be featured by the Hachette Guide 2010, an indication of its quality.
