Chateau Ducasse Graves Rouge 2014
A fleshy, supple and rounded wine from the left bank of the Gironde. Deep ruby red in colour with an expressive nose of alluring sweet red fruits. The palate is smooth with flavours of raisins, plums and ripe black fruits with undertones of more mature characteristics such as tobacco, earth and dried herbs. Well strucutred with soft, supple tannins filling out the palate which leads into a long finish.
Drink as an accompaniment to pates and terrines, rabbit, roast pork or spicy meat dishes and rich cheeses.
From the expanding suburbs of the City of Bordeaux, the region of Graves stretches south to the town of Langon with the sub-region of Pessac-Leognon considered superior quality. It produces earthy, mineral rich red wines that reflect the gravelly soils. The classic white wines blend Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc varieties, which are given added richness by a period of oak maturation.
