Southern French Cab/Merlot Beautiful with Tournedos Sauté aux Champignons

We treated ourselves to some fillet steak and used it in Tournedos Sauté aux Champignons from Supercook.  This is steak in a mushroom and red wine sauce.  Supercook recommended a claret.  We opted for a bottle of Espitalet des Anges Cabernet Merlot 2007 from Sunday Times Wine Club.  This is a southern French Cabernet/Merlot blend, designed to give Bordeaux a run for its money according to Laithwaites.  It complemented the steak beautifully.  The combination accentuated the deep blackcurrant character and juicy plummy flavours in the wine.
