Chateau d'Aussieres 2015 750ml
Fittingly restrained and buttoned-down for an estate run by Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) since 1999, this is an elegant Corbieres, chocolate-smooth and quietly spicy. Forty percent of the blend ages in new barriques from DBR’s cooperage in Pauillac, which gives the wine plenty of tobacco and cedar scents, but the oak aging doesn’t overpower the plummy fruit. Give it another few years in the cellar to meld and it will be an elegant companion to a leg of lamb.
Alcohol Vol. 13%
