BORDEAUX

2012

70% Merlot | 30% Cabernet

Exem Bordeaux is 100% estate produced in Lestiac-sur-Garonne, little village 15km South East from Bordeaux along the right bank of the Garonne river, by the Gonfrier family.

The concept of Exem is to provide the consumer with an uncomplicated and “non-threatening” avenue to discover the joys of fine Bordeaux. There are so many different chateaux and wines that it is often overwhelming and hard to know where to start.

Aromas are of ripe red and black fruits with no green notes found in ‘old fashion’ Bordeaux reds. The palate is rich and harmonious with tannins that are soft and elegant. You will find with Exem a new style of Bordeaux, profiling perfectly ripe fruit (which is rare in Bordeaux).
