Chateau Blaignan Médoc 2018
|France, Bordeaux, Medoc
A fruity, juicy wine with soft tannins and bright red-berry flavors, this bubbles with energy and freshness. It will settle into a smoothly textured wine that should be ready to drink from 2023.
Friendly dark cherry and plum notes are lined with sanguine and iron threads, with a savory edge adding freshness on the finish. Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Drink now through 2025. 40,000 cases made, 5,000 cases imported.
The 2018 Blaignan is an attractive Médoc Cru Bourgeois endowed with good energy and complexity within its peer group. Ripe red-toned fruit and floral notes lend freshness throughout. This is very nicely done.
