The Château Turcaud Rouge brings to the palate a freshness and a good length with a persistent fruitiness. A blend of 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon with a beautiful garnet-red colour with purple highlights. Spicy (pepper, clove and eucalyptus), blackberry and red fruit aromas with toasty, smoky, and forest floor overtones. The freshness on the nose is also to be found on the palate. Good, long, fruity aftertaste. The tannin becomes more round and the wine altogether more balanced after several months bottling.
