Chateau Segondignac Medoc 2006

31 May

This grand vin de Bordeaux is from the Gironde region east of Bordeaux.

With a deep purple color, it has a nose of red and black fruit with floral notes. The palate is a well made bordeaux blend of plum, cassis, and spice box. The back palate is quite earthy, with notes of vanilla and oak on the finish.

The 2006 is still a touch young and required some air and time to open up. If you can, decanter for an hour before drinking.

I found this through Sherry-Lehman at 12/bottle but it’s on the internet as low as $10/bottle. For a nicely blended bordeaux that demonstrates a soft and feminine side, this is a good value in red wine that pairs nicely with meat or strong flavors. Chateau Segondignac could be an ideal wine for a party or dinner with several entrees.
