Chateau Jean Faux, Sainte-Radegonde 2011, Bordeaux Supérieur, France
Tasting Note: A solid, basic, red Bordeaux.
Ruby-tending-towards-garnet in color around the edges, this wine has a nose of red fruit including red plum, blackberry and light, floral aromas.
On the palate the dry, medium-bodied red blend has a relatively straightforward flavor profile with some fleeting moments of concentration.
The wine, which has aging potential, is medium-plus in acidity, high in tannin and completes with a medium finish.
Bottle Note: While the image of Bordeaux is formed by prestige of classified growths of the Medoc and Haut Medoc, the region offers many small, quality driven family owned properties from the satellite appellations along the banks of the Garrone and Dordogne rivers. My “Bordeaux Collection” represents the fine work of dedicated producers making wines from these lesser known areas. Please enjoy these delicious, superb-value wines. Santé. Daniel Johnnes. Wine made from organic grapes.
