Château Devise D'ardilley 2012   

Haut-Médoc, Bordeaux A.C., France

Château Devise D'ardilley 2012A spectacular Bordeaux from a superb vintage. This baby needs serious cellar time. Tannic and tightly wound, this will reward patience and decanting. Aromas of cassis and blackberry. A terrific and beautifully balanced Bordeaux red wine blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes from the strong 2012 vintage. Could use some cellar time. Aromas of black fruit and toasty oak. Decant 1-2 hours and pair with a rare steak.
