Bordeaux’s Côtes de Bourg region offers some great value red wines. This blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec, from an excellent vintage, is opaque purple in colour with a cedary-sandalwood nose of ripe plums. Medium-bodied and dry, it’s made in New World style. The flavours of plum and blackberry are delivered with a creamy mouth-feel. Perfect with lamb.
