Château Saint Aubin Cru Bourgeois 2014

Château Saint-Aubin is a red wine from the Médoc. The vineyards are planted on sand and gravel about as far north of Bordeaux as is possible to be viable. The natural low acidity produced by these soils is compensated by clever blending of several red grape varieties including, Petit Verdot for acidity, Carmenère for spice within a Merlot rich blend. This is an attractive, characterful wine with an innovative composition which attains optimal balance and flavour.
