A blend of Cabernet Franc 39%, Merlot 31% Cabernet Sauvignon 30% - the Flagship red. When Christine is at its best, as this is, you get so much quality, complexity, finesse and class for the price.
With a beautiful perfume of Cabernet and Cabernet Franc, a touch of dusted chocolate truffles, and some graphite, this is quite the wine. Great elegance, complex, beautiful savoury spicy characters. 2014 was big, structured year, and this is a deep wine. You'll be tiring of me saying this now, but if that same trophy winery slapped their top label on the Meifort and charged £25, they might also call this their Family Reserve and charge £40.
