Chateau Gree Laroque Bordeaux Superieur 2006
Yep. 2006 Bordeaux for fifteen dollars. This has aged most of the fruit away and the tertiary flavors are front and center. Skillfully shaped from nearly a 1/2 century old Merlot (85%), Cabernet Franc (10%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (5%) vines that are impeccably farmed from Laroque’s vineyards, this beauty is astonishingly well balanced with velvety tannins that wrap around violet-infused blackberry, leather, dark plum and graphite.
