Classique 2014, Rupert & Rothschild, Western Cape, South Africa
Classique is the second cuvée produced at Rupert and Rothschild Vignerons. The partnership was formed in 1997 and now produces three wines, all of which are richly concentrated, complex, yet contrasting. Classique is always based on a Bordeaux blend, and usually consists of almost equal amounts of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine tends to reach its peak before Baron Edmond, its venerable counterpart, and tends to be lighter and more accessible in its youth.

This blend of 50% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc provides a wonderful nose red fruit, cranberry, cedar, and a hint of dark chocolate and toasted oak. The palate is seamless and elegant with a beautiful degree of ripeness, a touch of smoky oak and a spicy anise and herbal finish. Classique provides excellent value for money and if cellared correctly develops well in the bottle too.
