Chateau Devise De Ardilley Cru Bourgeois, Haut Medoc
- Bordeaux, France
- Chateau Devise De Ardilley
- Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot
A blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot with 5% Petit Verdot, this wine is 100% barrel aged with a third being aged in new oak. The 2011 is an early maturing vintage and the wine is drinking very well now.
This is a real classic Claret full of deep, earthy Cassis and Blackberry fruit with hints of cigar box and Truffle starting to emerge.
