Château du Breuil 2014 (Red)
We should talk about the wine, but we can't help being impressed by the castle of Breuil, going back to the 6th century! It is under the same ownership as neighboring Château Cissac and the vineyards slope down in the valley of Haut-Médoc, Bordeaux with the vineyards of Château Lafite Rothschild on one side and Château Cos d'Estournel on the other. Even if those famous names don't ring a bell, the fact that you have to keep saying, "look a Château (Castle)!" over and over again is already enough.
In this landscape known to produce the finest wines of Bordeaux, the average age of the grape vines at Château du Breuil are 20 years of age with the exception of the Petit Verdot from old vines.
In your bottle is a blend of 54% Merlot, 43% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 3% Petit Verdot. The nose is complex with aromas of fresh plum, blueberry, violets, cinnamon, and clove. On the palate the wine is fruit forward and dense, with fine polished tannins, beautiful structure and a powerful core which means you can drink one now and buy another to enjoy even more at a later date (but at today's prices).
If you're thinking of having this with a meal, wonderful pairings include shredded crispy beef, smoked duck and even char kway teow.
In your case, an amazing:
