Hyde de Villaine Belle Cousine 2012

This vintage of the Hyde de Villaine Belle Cousine is a Merlot dominated Bordeaux blend, approachable in youth and richly textured.  Deep red in colour, Belle Cousine displays intensity and persistence on the nose, with subtle nuances of ripe black-fruit and minerality. On the palate, this restrained wine displays balance with developed and refined tannins. Bright acidity and elegant fruit exudes definition and focus to the mid palate. The back palate crescendos in a long, subtle, and graceful finish.
