LES GRANGES HAUT MEDOC 750ML
Les Granges Haut-Medoc wine is a nice, dark red color. When you smell it, it doesn’t have a strong smell of wood. Instead, it smells mostly like red currants, plums, and some herbs.
When you take a sip, it feels a bit heavy and young, and it makes your mouth feel a little dry because of the tannins. You can taste crushed red currants and a flavor like sage. The aftertaste stays in your mouth for a decent amount of time, and it feels fresh.

Tasting Notes: When you smell this wine, you’ll notice lovely scents of fresh fruits like blackcurrant, strawberry, and blackberry. When you taste it, you’ll find that it has a rich flavor with hints of vanilla, and the tannins (which are compounds found in wine) are fine and long-lasting. The finish is rich and well-balanced, with a gentle and smooth woodiness.

Pairings: “Les Granges” goes well with grilled meats, especially grilled lamb, and dishes with mushrooms.
