Domaine Bosc-Long Braucol, Gaillac, France 2010

11.95

From one of Europe's oldest wine-growing regions this Braucol (a member of the Cabernet family) is full of old-word charm and has spent 18 months in new and old oak barrels followed by 6 years ageing in bottle, so it was released at a perfect state of maturity. This is unashamedly ‘old school’ in style, a leafy, blackcurranty, cedary, medium-bodied red that tastes like a gentle Saint Julien, like Chateau Talbot, and should be paired with classic dishes, like roast lamb or roast beef. Do not drink it with molecular gastronomy or it will ruin the powdered kelp and kumquat foam. 13% alc. Drink now-2020.

Press review:

Jancis Robinson (Tamlyn Currin):
“Smells pretty vegetal – green pepper, tomato leaf, blackcurrant nibs aromas and flavours. Tastes like a fairly green Cabernet, a bit pinched. Dry, slim tannins clenching long nervous fingers. Old-fashioned, a little skinny and anxious, but will probably behave with total decorum if paired with a rare lamb roast and salsa verde. Drink 2017-2020” 16 points
