Château du Courlat
This property is owned by the Audy family whose negociant house is situated in Libourne. In honour of Pierre Bourotte's grand-father, Jean-Baptiste Audy, this is a wine of power and depth produced from the oldest Merlot vines of the property grown on a deep clay soil.
The palate is dominated by crunchy black fruits and a hint of liquorice, along with a streak of graphite and pencil lead.
How about brasied lamb with giant white beans?
