Appellation: Bordeaux Supérieur Red
Blend: 50% Merlot
40% Cabernet Sauvignon
9% Cabernet Franc
Tasting note: With its equal proportions of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, Château de Parenchère Bordeaux Supérieur Red is half-way between a Médoc and a Saint-Emilion.
Merlot gives it its supple, fruity fleshiness; Cabernet-Sauvignon provides structure and additional tannic density.
This traditional Parenchère blend is generally very fleshy, with a very deeply coloured robe. Characterized by a good balance between fruit and tannin, it displays distinct red fruit aromas with a long, sustained finish.
