#WeLikeWine – Comtesse Saint-Hilaire Montagne Saint-Émilion 2012

Comtesse Saint-Hilaire 2012To the other side of Bordeaux in south-western France lies the famous and picturesque town of Saint-Émilion where merlot, rather than cabernet, tends to dominate the claret blends.

This Comtesse Saint Hilaire Montagne Saint-Émilion 2012 available from Co-op stores is crafted from 60% merlot, 20% cabernet sauvignon and 20% cabernet franc grapes. It’s an excellent wine for everyday dining with a fragrance of blackcurrant, blueberry and fresh herbs. The flavour is smooth, elegant and well-balanced with a touch of vanilla and acidity on the finish. Serve with meat dishes such as roasts, stews and steaks – very good with BBQ food.
