Wine of the Week for September 5, 2019

Château La Pirouette 2016 (Bordeaux)
Deep ruby in colour; cedary, ripe plum bouquet with oak spice and a light floral grace note; medium-bodied, dry, bright, gently savoury flavours of ripe plum and cherry and milk chocolate. Well-balanced, nicely structured and quite forward with ripe tannins. Drinking well now but will reward a couple of years’ cellaring. This tasty Medoc is a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot has 13% alcohol and 2 g/L residual sugar. (90 points) BEST BUY ($23.95, Vintages #644799)
