Chateau Robert Cotes de Bourg 2016

The Romans started planting vines in this area back in the 1st century. They understood that the combination of rich soil, climate and exposition here were ideal for cultivating the grapes and this is still the case today. By the 19th century merlot was being regularly planted in the area. After a series of setbacks that included a severe frost in 1956 and several vintages in the 1960’s lost to rot, French authorities in Bordeaux banned new plantings of merlot vines between 1970 and 1975. Thankfully they are back planting again and the world can rest easy again.

The Robert is blended with 55% merlot, 40% cabernet sauvignon and 5% cabernet franc. It is no wonder that this wine was a standout as the family have been making wine for 4 generations! It has been blended so well and the dark berries that you get on the nose and the smooth tannins are joyous to the taste buds! This is a really charming Bordeaux that won’t break your budget.

It can be matched with so many everyday meals. Just because you have a casual meal doesn’t mean you have to have a casual wine. We matched it with a cheeseburger with brioche bun and special sauce (click for recipe) and it was scrumptious and so easy!
