Your daily drinking options just got better, the $6.99 Trader Joe's Badet Clement Revelation Cabernet-Merlot Pays d'Oc red blend. Bulk Buy!
The Revelation Cabernet-Merlot is made by the same producer (Badet Clement) as the Pontificis GSM and White Blend, both of which we also loved. Like those wines it is a Trader Joe's exclusive and sells for just $6.99. It is imported by Latitude Wines.
Revelation, Cabernet Sauvignon (55%) - Merlot (45%), has a lovely deep red colour and a velvety appearance. The nose displays very intense aromas of dark chocolate, cherries and blackcurrants. This wine is rich, round with mature tannins. This is a very complex and elegant wine. It is best enjoyed with stews, steaks, duck or cheese. Best served around 65F.
The 2019 Badet Clement Revelation Cabernet-Merlot Pays d'Oc begins with quite an attractive aroma of black cherry and assorted berry notes, lots of licorice, a little vanilla and a nice bit of chocolate.
The medium-bodied wine tastes smooth and fruit forward with some well-done spice, licorice and leather accents. It's fairly simple but really tasty and quite good quality for this low of a price. It ends dry and with good length. Just like the Pontificis wines, this is another great everyday drinker option.
We've reviewed this one many times and there is absolutely nothing not to like here, it's just really well done and rather amazing for the price. This is definitely Bulk Buy material once again.
Also, it's a very different tasting wine but I put this in the same category as the Maison Barboulot Cabernet-Syrah in that is rather simple, but really well done and really delicious (and really inexpensive).
