The Sommelier’s Advice:
The Château LES EYQUEMS is a wonderful Côtes de Bourg, very typical of the region were it comes from. It has a nice ruby-red color, and the classical red fruit aromas emanate from the glass in an elegant and powerful bouquet, with a touch of oak. It still is very marked by red fruits in mouth, with wrapped tannins and a long length. Owned since 1962 by Mr and Mrs de Subercazaux.
To be served at room temperature with red meats and cheese.
