DESCRIPTION

Château Cagnas is a typical right bank blend: 70 % of Merlot, 15 % of Cabernet Sauvignon and 15 % of Cabernet Franc. Grapes grown on a soil made of clay and limestone, were picked up near from Côtes de Bourg, in the Bordeaux area. This is a modern, well-balanced and elegant wine, accessible and tasting great now but has potential to age 3 to 5 years.
