This Château Du Buisson Bordeaux 2005 is a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Cabernet Sauvignon. Wow. I was very pleasantly surprised at this wine. Tom bought this wine tonight at Trader Joe’s in Ann Arbor for around $7. The color is deep reddish purple. The nose is fresh and exhilarating. On the palate is a hint of licorice, some vanilla, and oak. This is a very dry and tannic wine. What I love about this wine is that it is not sweet or overly fruity — I am not a fan of jammy wine. I really like this wine very much!
Tom: This Château Du Buisson Bordeaux 2005 is a very nice, big-tasting red. The label says that it’s raised in oak barrels (elevé en fûts de chêne). It’s dry, a bit on the soft side (82% Merlot), with hints of cherry and vanilla. Very nice, very drinkable.
