Chateau Mayne Guyon 2015 - Laithwaites
Blaye Côtes de Bordeaux is essentially a slightly better appellation than basic Bordeaux; based on the right bank, Merlot dominates here.
2015 was a very good year in Bordeaux, so this ticks all the boxes.
And it delivers on quality, too; however, the price is a little toppy - even for a right bank Bordeaux.
Chateau Mayne Guyon Blaye Côtes de Bordeaux 2015 (Laithwaites, £16.99) ripe dark berries, sour cherry and some oaky spice; supple and fresh; concentrated and harmonious with fine tannins.
Still youthful and will age further.
Good (but not great value).
Match with a Sunday roast.
