Wine Review - Chateau La Rose Saint Bonnet, Medoc 2009


The third bottle of wine that I tried from my WSJ Wine shipment was a red from Bordeaux, France -- Chateau La Rose Saint Bonnet, Medoc 2009.

The description of the bottle included in my case as described on WSJ Wine's website:
Deep red-purple in the glass.  Attractive aromas of dark berry fruit and ripe plum, with subtle spicy oak notes.  Lovely layers of blackberry, cassis and tobacco on a palate.  Smooth and full bodied.  Decant an hour before serving.  14% vol.

WSJwine Item #0248509 $20.99/bottle

My opinion - This is definitely a wine for a red meat kind of dish, preferably steak or something equally as hearty.  It's a rich wine.

Suggested food pairings:

Bacon Wrapped Teriyaki Beef Bites
Grilled Marinated London Broil
