Alfio Moriconi Selection Bordeaux Chateau Bellevue 2014, France

My Rating 78 Points.   

Price $10.

 

Light ruby in color throughout, with light intensity.

Nice aromatic nose of violets, blueberries, plums, raspberries, wood, light vanilla, licorice, earth, alcohol, spices, forest floor, smoke, light vegetables, chocolates and peppercorn.

Medium bodied with high acidity and nice legs.

Dry on the palate with plums, sour strawberries, raspberries, pomegranates, earth, leather, pencil lead, bell pepper and black pepper.

Short finish with light, round tannins and tangy cranberries.

This is a nice food wine from Bordeaux. Unbalanced and simple, but drinkable.
Gets earthier after an hour in a decanter, with lots of earth and vegetable notes.

Not my style, but not expensive, either. Good everyday wine with dinner. I liked the nose better than the palate.

A blend of 65% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc.

I paired it with hard cheeses, nuts and dried fruits.

12% alcohol by volume.
