Château Trebiac 2006

Wednesday, February 1st, 2012

Vintage: 2006
Type: Bordeaux Blend
Country: France – Bordeaux – Graves

This is a bottle that came in a Bordeaux sample pack provided by the merchant, Adnams.

Given that this is a Bordeaux blend of 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, I knew that it would be an acceptable bottle to drink.

This wine was aged 3 months in oak barrels and then another 9 months in stainless steel vats.

Appearance:

Clear, medium Garnet

Nose:

Clean, medium nose of red fruit (strawberries and cherries), as well as vanilla.

Palate:

Full-bodied, high acidity, medium tannins. Characteristics of sweet spice. Medium finish.

Conclusions:

Good.

This is a claret that would go well with simplistic, lightly-flavoured, traditional English food, like Chicken and Mushroom pie or Toad in the Hole.
