    I would suggest this bottle for the lovers of "old world" style wines. It's showing a touch of leather and earth, along with some delicious spiciness and even floral notes. As for food pairing, I think an elegant Mexican dinner, Greek food and the likes. And of course anything with a mushroom sauce (Sauce Chasseur).

    From the portfolio of wines of Bernard Magrez, owner of Chateau Pape Clement. Chateau Plaisance is not in Pessac-Léognan but in the Entre-Deux-Mers region, producing red wines under the appellation Côtes de Bordeaux. The 2012 Plaisance "Cuvee Alix" is a blend of 75% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 5% Cabernet Franc aged 9 months in a combination of tank and barrel, 50% of which are new. Generous, forward fruit here with lovely mid-palate weight and fine tannins. Very true to the ’12 vintage. A perennial customer favorite in the sub $20 Bordeaux category.

    This is soft, creamy and plush with a gentle warmth to the dark fruit, savory herb and tobacco filled middle. This soft and delicious value is ready to drink now. Another superb winner from the folks at Chateau Pape Clement.

    Fabulous value red. Aromas of tobacco leaves, roasted herbs, red and black currants, and assorted berry fruit emerge from this elegant, mid-weight blend of 75% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc.
    Drink from 2017 to 2022
