2011 Château Grand Puy Ducasse, 5ème Cru Classé
80% Cabernet Sauvignon
FOOD MATCHING NOTE:
East meets west cuisine always works well, fine red meat examples such as: hibiscus-marinated leg of lamb, oriental lamb steaks, can be found, or a simple but hearty dish such as beef medallions in red wine sauce, work perfectly.
Exhibits a dense, almost opaque colour with gorgeous up-front, sweet, ripe fruit. The palate is medium to full bodied and chewy with a well endowed, plush texture. The wine is pure, complex and engaging.
