Winemaker Notes

The Classique, Glen Carlou's signature wine, displays a rich ruby red color with a youthful cherry skin hue. Aromas of young black fruit and oak, with traces of pencil shavings flavor. Tobacco and black cured cherries, with layers of dark chocolate and spice finish. The tannins are beautifully proportioned with mild toasted almond. Enjoy with lamb cutlets or braised pork belly. The Classique possesses great ageing potential that will show rounder flavors and tannins with bottle age.

Critical Acclaim

W&S 90
Wine & Spirits

This Bordeaux-varietal blend has a particularly intriguing fruit spectrum - brandied cherries and blackberry are immediately apparent, with something almost peachy underneath. The herbal edge of cabernet shows in a smoked tea note that melds with the savory oak. Drink it now with venison.
