LITTLE DONKEY ROUGE 2017: AOC Blaye Côtes de Bordeaux

"The 2017 Marzin is a tripartite blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec matured only in tank. It has an attractive well-defined bouquet, fresh and lively with brambly black fruit mixed with cedar and minerals. Eschewing wood was an assidious move on the part of Olivier Dauga. The palate is medium-bidied, quite classic in style with fine acidity, with an earthy but sustained finish. This is an excellent Blaye Côtes de Bordeaux."

 

TASTING NOTE:  89/100
