Domaine Virginie Thunevin 2011
70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc
A touch airy at the core of damson plum and cherry pit notes, with slightly perky acidity holding the finish together. Tannins and acidity hint to fine aging potential for this well-made, balanced wine. Acidity and freshness are dominant.
