2009 Chateau Tertre De Belves, Castillon, Cotes De Bordeaux. This is 10 miles East of Pomerol. 95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc. This AVA is inferior because the terroir has to much clay and limestone. The winemakers use toasted french oak barrels to mask the flaw. It is oaky Merlot. The same style of California Merlots. This is a great introduction to Bordeaux Wine.
