TASTING NOTES

The Château la Bastidette 2011 shows off a bright red colour with garnet reflections. Red fruits’aroma (strawberry, raspberry) and flower notes match very well. In mouth, we discover a round and well-balanced vintage, sugar and freshness are held by elegant tannins. Finally, we enjoy a thin and remaining taste. Can be drunk right away.

TASTING NOTES

The Château La Bastidette shows off a black colour with garnet-red tints. The nose is very expressive, with blackcurrant and cherry aroma, mixed with vanilla and mineral notes. This vintage is concentrated and round in mouth, well balanced with a touch of freshness. It is already a greedy and pleasant wine.
