CHATEAU CLAUZET 2010
55% Cabernet Sauvignon
5% Petite Verdot and Cabernet Franc
Saint ripe fruit on the nose, a little subdued at first,
but then it opens up into a mouth-coating wine,
a good balance with red fruit, strawberry & spicy cherry flavours.
A little leather on the close brings the flavours together & finish goes on.
