Red wine review: Chateau de Tiregand 2005 Grand Millésime

Ringing up at around $20- 30, the 2005 vintage of Chateau de Tiregand's Grand Millésime is an excellent find.

Chateau de Tiregand is a blended red wine with a brick-red presentation. The bouquet provides one's nose with a complex blend of plum and spices. While the ether of this wine carries a slightly spicy sweetness, its full-bodied palette is dry and well balanced.

Chateau de Tiregand 2005 grand Millésime comes from the Pércharmant appellation. This appelation is located North-East of Bergerac, France. Once cultivated, the blend of Merlot (60%), Cabernet Sauvignon (35%), and Cabernet Franc (5%) grapes is aged eighteen months in new and old oak barrels.

On their website, Chateau Tiregand recommends aging this wine in the bottle for an additional 6- 8 years (between 2011 and 2013), but you could potentially enjoy this wine any time you're looking for a good red between now and then.
