*5R* 2016 Chateau de Lescours Saint-Emilion Grand Cru (Bordeaux, FR)

Weight: 5R

Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon  Cabernet Franc  Merlot

Region: Bordeaux, France

A brighter take on often heavier blends, this wine leans more towards pairing with grilled chicken rather than a fatty steak. As with most young Bordeaux blends, you will get hints of roasted jalapeno on the nose, but on the palate you’re met with lots of ripe fruit including plum and blackberry. A bright garnet in color, you'll have a medium weighted wine with plenty of tannins. Ready to drink now but will also live a long life in bottle.
