  • $30.99
Château Rousselle bottle

This is a classic, juicy and uplifting ‘claret’ from the Right Bank appellation of Côtes de Bourg in Bordeaux. This small region sits directly across the river from Margaux, on a bed of limestone and clay. Château Rousselle is a venerable estate, founded long ago in 1636, and is one of the top chateaux classified in the Cru Bourgeois ranking. Merlot dominates this medium-bodied blend, fleshed out with Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Malbec. The aromas are plummy and spicy with a hint of cedar, and your first sip will reveal dark black currant, mocha and a note of vanilla from French oak casks. Mellowed by 5 years of age with brisk moderate tannins, it’s a satisfying wine built for food, like simple grilled entrecôte, braised lamb shank or hard cheese. This traditional claret, from an elegant vintage, comes for a great price.
