Yesterday I was in the 12th edition of the French Wine Trade Show that Business France organizes every year. It is a trade tasting gathering wine companies from all French wine regions. They presented more than 300 wines, giving tthe attendees a unique opportunity to discover and taste wines from a wide range of appellations of France!
I had the opportunity to get some samples, which I’ll post my notes here and on twitter.
Clos de Bouard Montagne St. Emilion, Dame de Boüard 2016
This vivid red wine is a blend of 60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. Medium bodied, soft, silky and fresh, the wine is perfect for early, supple, drinking pleasure with all its charming. On the nose it brings ripe fruit aromas, and in the palate is quite balanced and offers velvety tannins, with lovely fruit flavours. Quite elegant for the second wine of the house.
