Wine Entry : Grand Bateau Bordeaux 2005 (French)

Smell : Chilled it too much to get much of a scent

Taste : Smooth and flavourful of mixture of cassis and wood.

After taste : Evolved mild spice that is delightful.

Description at back of bottle : The boat which decorates this label is the mythical galleon of the famous Ch. Beychevelle, our sister company which sponsors the creation of Grand Bateau. Grand Bateau is a harmonious blend of the grape varieties 75 percent merlot and 25 percent cabernet sauvignon. Aged partially in new oak barrels for 6 to 8 months, the wine is rich and round, medium to full bodied and has luscious ripe red fruit flavours (plums, prunes and cherries)
