The 2016 Chateau Les Aubiers Blaye Cotes de Bordeaux is a balanced, concentrated wine with flavors and aromas of fresh raspberries, blackberries and plums, bits of mint, chocolate, cedar, and smoke. Everything is soft and round, the acid and tannins are a medium, it has a smoothness of style that communicate Merlot. This would be an excellent weeknight pizza wine, fresh and fruity but with a bit of woody depth and warmth. We’d take this any day over a monstrously overpriced Merlot from a state that won’t be named.
Balanced and structured, this rich organic wine is generous and packed with black fruits. Concentration and layers of wood are all part of Jean-François Reaud's fruity wine that will age well. Drink from 2021.
