Mitjavile - Cote de Bordeaux "Le Versant" 2019
Produced by Louis Mitjavile, a Bordeaux winegrower whose fame is well established in the region, Le Versant is Domaine de l'Aurage's second wine. Caroline and Louis Mitjavile established their domaine in Saint-Genès-de-Castillon in Castillon-Côtesde-Bordeaux in 2007 as Louis branched out from his father's domaines. Louis is the son of François Mitjavile, owner of Tertre Roteboeuf and Roc de Cambes.
Le Versant 2019 impresses with its explosion of fruit as well as its concentration. In an assertive Bordeaux style, the Mitjavile cuvée nevertheless remains very accessible in the mouth. For a 2019 vintage, the wine already presents a very good drinkability, while retaining a good ageing potential. Certainly superb value for money.
85% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc
