A delicious, even tempered, well integrated merlot for near to mid -term drinking. Classic, ripe berry, fresh herbs...

I’ve enjoyed several vintages of ‘cuvée viva’ and have yet to be let down but this Côtes de Blaye producer. Primarily Merlot in the blend with a touch of Cab.Sauv and Cab.Franc. Expect hints of oak, black fruit and some earthiness. Reliable, traditional, and really quite nice. Cellar until 2012 or decant before serving. (northof9finewine, Jan 2011)
