Les Remparts De Bel Air Red Bordeaux Superieur 2012, France

My Rating 81 Points.   

Price $15. 
Beautiful ruby in color with medium intensity and a reddish rim.

Stinky nose of barnyard, plums, blueberries, earth, wood, forest floor, smoke, green pepper, thyme, cloves and black pepper.

Medium bodied with medium acidity and nice legs.

Earthy and bone dry on the palate, with currants, plums, sour blueberries, barnyard, earth, wood, light vanilla, tobacco, bitter vegetables, bell peppers, spices and peppercorn.

Medium finish with firm tannins and tart cherries.

A Drinkable red Bordeaux. Better with food than all by itself. Very earthy and a bit unbalanced.

I paired it with cheeses and light appetizers. It’s even kosher, if that’s your thing…

12.5% alcohol by volume.
