Toasted, savoury, classic.
The back label explains the curious name of this estate and the Frenchman who once owned it. He'd spent time in Canada some two hundred years ago and was so taken with our homeland he brought the name back to France.
The Chateau is located 15 kilometers north of Bordeaux.
I review this wine year after year, and see its variations.
The 2018 suggests chocolate covered cherries, vanilla, pipe tobacco and baking spices with lashings of cedar and dried rose petals. Cocoa, espresso, spice and charred oak flavours are layered with dusty plums. It's a classic wine; this vintage has notable grip and a toasty/savoury character.
