Description

Over to the Left Bank of the Gironde and up into the Médoc. I've overlooked this wine in the past because it has a rather staid, old fashioned label, though our recent tastings show I've been guilty of judging this book by its cover. The 2012 is in fact a really attractive Cru Bourgeois and just hitting its window of maturity. The previous owner, Denis Fabre, did a sterling job over many years with this 43-hectare vineyard before selling up in 2018 to Emmanuel Martin, who comes from a wine trading family not far from us at Bauduc. The winery is pretty standard, for now, but we were fairly blown away by the long-standing investment in the underground barrel cellar.

it shows in the complexity of the wine. Supple and almost lush for a Médoc at this age, this is a thoroughly decent and subtly oaky blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon and 45% Merlot. Our Bauduc importer in Switzerland, Philipp Schwander MW, requested a new label for the 3,000 6-packs he bought, and some of our cases have that new 'Gold' one, and some the classic label. The wine inside is the same. 13.5% vol.
