Cap d'Or Saint-Georges Saint-Emilion Rouge 2015
86% MERLOT / 14% CABERNET FRANC
Cap d’Or is the chateau’s second wine, but rather than being secondary it is rather its feminine counterpart. This femininity reveals itself in a floral, raspberry touch and in freshness and minerality. The wine is fine and seductive, with a very delicate hint of oak that reinforces the fruit and the terroir. Historically, Cap d’Or was named Cap Doro by the Romans in the First Century when they decided to clear the south facing slopes. Superb exposure to the sunlight allows for an excellent maturation of the grapes and seeds, providing the basis for a very natural vinification.
Most any meat; really, lamb, beef, pork, chicken, duck. Has an affinity for tomatoes and mushrooms.
