Our tasting notes: Nice and intense ruby color with purple tints. Intense aromas of black fruits, of spices (liquorice and pepper) and of flowers. This wine is both powerful and harmonious. The first taste is velvety, the mouthfeel is ample and rich and the finish is long with great balance. Lovely savoury clean finish.

This wine won the trophy for the Best Red Wine (under 15 pounds) in the Decanter World Wine Awards in July 2015. "Fresh and warm, with well-judged oak bringing a little spiciness to the table, complementing earthy, smoky aromas of black cherry, herbs and liquorice. Vivid, ample, stylish and articulate, this displays lovely balance, reams of deep, juicy fruit, and a characterful, dusty finish. A simply stunning illustration of Fronton."

This #wine won #Decanter Magazine's best red blend under £15. The Château Bouissel, Fronton, from the south west of #France... it's so full of life. An interesting assortment of Negrette, Syrah and Cot (Malbec). Call it the good looking alternative type. A bit rough with earthy and spicy characters but very complex and intriguing. It's a party in a bottle! Imported into Aus by @discovervinwines. #vino #vin #winelover #wineoclock #redwine #winewankers #conrad
