Château Vignelaure 2000 La Colline de Vignelaure Merlot-Cabernet Sauvignon (Vin de Pays des Coteaux du Verdon)

This blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet is aged in 100% new oak, and even seven-plus years after the vintage the oak is still prominent—there’s lots of vanilla and toast upfront. That said, the wine has a rich, creamy texture and plenty of black cherry and herb notes come through on the finish, so the bet here is that this just needs another year or two before…
