Cuvée M Red

Home > Our Wines > Our wines > Cuvée M Rouge

Our «Caractères André Lurton» is a range of wines carefully created from appellations outside our own vineyards. Benefiting from our winemaking and oenological expertise, it was born from our desire to offer our customers a complete range of Bordeaux wines.


Vintage
label of 2016 Cuvée M red
Appellation : Margaux

Wine style

Full and Complex

Grape blend

60 % Merlot / 30 % Cabernet sauvignon / 10 % Petit verdot

Weather

2016 was one of the finest vintages in the past 20 years. Winter was exceptionally wet and mild, and it rained a great deal in spring until June. However, the weather changed radically in mid-June, turning warm and quite dry, with cool nights. Ideal conditions for growing excellent wine grapes!

Tasting Comment

Appearance

 Colour is a deep red, very dark garnet.

Nose

Nose is dominated by pleasant notes of fresh red fruit (redcurrant, raspberry), but also blackcurrant, with a subtle spicy touch of liquorice

Mouth

On the palate, richness and smoothness are present. It is a wine that expresses itself with aromas of fresh red berries such as redcurrant, raspberry and blackcurrant, delicately complemented by spicy touches of cedar and liquorice, slightly peppery. From a prestigious terroir, this Cuvée M is perfectly balanced and will be the ideal companion of a rack of veal with chanterelles, a leg of mutton or a tasty cheese platter. (Cheddar, Gouda)
