Chateau d'Argadens 2009
Owned by the Sichel combine, this vineyard in the Entre-Deux-Mers district south of Bordeaux, produces two wines, a white and a red. The red is a Merlot/Cabernet Sauvignon/ Cabernet Franc blend, designated a Bordeaux Superieur,. In our opinion, it's a highly successful wine, with muted dark fruit flavors, a subdued acidity in the finish, and a goodly amount of complexity. It ought to last for some years to come and one should consider cellaring it. Well worth the sale price of $11.99.
