Domaine Despagne Rapin - Saint Emilion, France
Les Piliers de Maison Blanche 2016 (14.0% ABV)
A classic claret belnd of Cabernet France/Merlot. The nose is black fruit, so ripe that it is almost jammy enough to taste; in the mouth - full and round with elegant tannins that add rather than detract. A wine that will go to perfection with most red meats, particularly if accompanied by a sauce.
