Côtes de Gascogne: Domaine Millet Cabernet Franc / Merlot 2013

A quaffable blend of Cabernet Franc and Merlot from Gascony that really comes into its own with poultry dishes or summer barbecues. Duck à l'Orange would be ideal!

What others think of this wine...

Jonathan Ray - Spectator Wine Club, July 2014. says:

The 2013 Côtes de Gascogne, Domaine Millet Cabernet Franc / Merlot from the Dèche family, celebrated producers of Armagnac near Eauze, in the heart of d’Artagnan country. Ripe fruit is cool-fermented in stainless steel vats to give a wine of admirable colour and freshness. Silky soft, I like this red lightly chilled too, allowing it to warm a little in the sun. Drink it with chicken liver salad or thick slices of saucisson sec.
