Tasting note

2018 Château de Ribebon Secret de Ribebon

A cuvée from Domaines Alain Aubert made from 60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. Purple colour. In the nose, spicy wood notes and a little bit of liquorice, but also soft aromas of elderberry and vanilla. On the fruity side, I get strawberries and dark berries. The mouthfeel is dry and conveys a medium body. The tannins are already well integrated. A pleasant acidity gives the wine freshness without disturbing. Although not low at 14%, the alcohol content is not intrusive. The taste reveals a mix of beetroot and blackberry. The finish is of medium length. This is a pleasant red wine to enjoy without much fuss.

Drink through 2024.
