🏛 Their family history and heritage come all the way back from 1764, even before the french revolution. Chateau Les Ormes Sorbet was one of the very early and first wine estates in Bordeaux to bottle and sell their own wines.
🇫🇷 The world-famous French wine region Bordeaux and the sub-region Medoc, the 8th generation of the Boivert family is proudly owning and producing the finest quality wines.
👀 The cork has a great impact of the wine. Deep red and almost indelible. The wine in the glass🍷is dark brick red with deep purple hues on the ring. Tears on the glass are significant and loud.
👃🏼not much deviating from the looks, the aroma are strong and dark. Primary aromas are clearly over-ripe dark plum, black currant, and blackberries. Secondary are earthy and strong reflection of terroir. Wet leafy forest and tobacco, green tea, and mushrooms. No herbs but certainly black pepper.
👅 BOLD AND TOUGH! This is something to rather keep and let it mature in the bottle. Very high tannins and strong grip. Super dry and mouthful. Medium-high body with 13.5 ABV, this feels full body and pretty heavy. The wine does not compromise in the acidity as well. Medium to high acidity and complex structure required at least 1-2 hours of decanting. Great combination of cabernet sau 🍇 , cab franc and merlot.
🍽 Typical red with high tannins goes for a congruent pairing to intensify the flavors. Standa true for Medoc reds. Go for veal, beef and pork with fatty sauce to balance the tannins. Full cream cheese is a nice option for a tasting session.
