Description

A supple and quietly fruity Bordeaux red. Recommended, especially for weeknight, uncomplicated enjoyment. £11.95 a bottle.

2017 was the year of the late Spring frost and we had to be pretty selective about the final blend for this. Bottled in the summer of 2019, it has proved to be way better than we originally thought. Medium bodied with good balance and with a fresh, fruity side, we've become pretty fond of it for our go-to, easy drinking red. We have also used Diam corks for the first time as they eliminate the risk of whiffy cork taint.

The back label: 'This is a classic Bordeaux blend of three quarters Merlot and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon. Medium to full bodied and partially aged in oak, it’s easy, fruity and supple enough to drink quite young. Serve with good food.' 13.5% vol.

See our nifty 'best to drink' graphic on the back label, a few pics from the vineyard below, or our 'Restaurant listings' which show you're in good company.

Earlier vintages:

“Wonderful plummy fruit and liquorice and leather scent. Soft, feathery tannins and just the right amount of mid weight. Not hugely complex, but presses all the right buttons for this level of Bordeaux. Very pleasurable claret.”

Richard Hemming MW, Jancis Robinson.com

“Today this is a model estate for Bordeaux, the white wines clean cut and vibrant, the reds increasingly good. And yet they remain affordable.”

Chris Kissack, thewinedoctor.com

“Red, pink and white, they are utterly drinkable, each possessing a classic, mouthwatering Bordeaux texture and easy going fruit.”
