Bessa Valley Winery, Enira, Bulgaria 2008
Described as ‘a regional wine from the Thracian lowlands’, Stephan von Neipperg’s (owner of Bordeaux’s Ch Canon La Gaffelière) Merlot-dominated blend is very reminiscent of St-Emilion’s warm berry fruits with a fresh earthiness on the palate. Robustly expressive.
