Bordeaux Blends (containing two or more of the following: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Malbec). () Barrel fermented/barrel matured/wooded (staves, chips or wood rice) 2020 and older
The 2018 Gouverneurs Reserve is a classic styled blend. Deep red colour and quite shy on the nose initially but the wine opens up to show amazing complexity of ripe plums and black berries woven into subtle oak flavours of cedar wood and cigar box. The palate shows great intensity and complexity of flavours and the fine tannin structure promises great ageing potential.
This elegant wine ages very well and will be enhanced by a delicious meal of beef short rib with black current reduction
