Cabernet Franc, Merlot
Chateau Teyssier, Pezat, Bordeaux, France, 750ml
Pezat is a stone’s throw away from the legendary appellation St.-Emilion, where renowned winemaker Jonathan Malthus also makes his Grand Cru Bordeaux. Herein lies a blend of Merlot and Cabernet Franc hand-picked grapes aged in 1/3 new French oak. On the nose, aromas of red and dark berries, toasted notes, and hints of tobacco. Ripe plum, spice, medium acidity, and low tannin. Try pairing with bacon-wrapped anything and pork sausage.
