Chateau Les Vergnes 2008 Bordeaux

The Chateau Les Vergnes crimson colored Bordeaux wine is a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Cabernet Franc and part of the Univitus Cooperative.

The nose opens with earthy notes, red currant, and pepper aromas. It was very lively with hints of licorice. The palate experienced dark cherry and a smooth silky finish with a decent amount of acidity.

This is a very good food wine as it paired quite well with grilled beef tenderloin and a vegetable medley of cauliflower, onions, garlic, and mushrooms. The price of $8.99 earns it 4 corks in value. This is one you’ll want to keep in your cellar for 3-5 years but very drinkable now.
