Benjamin du Château Lamartine 2012 - Cahors

This wine is out of stock

£ 8.90 tax incl.

The second wine from Château Lamartine is a very nice easy to drink Cahors. The fairly high proportion of Merlot for a Cahors (20%) makes it round and really accessible. It shows a very decent complexity for this price range with flavours of fresh red fruit and some wooden notes on the finish. A great choice to discover the appellation for a very decent price.
