Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon
Proof that there is value to be found on the left-bank of Bordeaux as well, Chateau Aimée is a gem discovered at VinExpo 2011. After tasting through literally hundreds, if not thousands, of wines Aimée was a welcome, refreshing surprise.
Aimée is a juicy blend of 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet, which is a bit unusual for a left-bank wine. The relatively large helping of Merlot gives this wine a great sense of fruit, and the Cabernet keeps everything in check with solid tannin and structure.
