Les Trois Hectares Rouge 2016

£14.75

A lovely, powerful wine from a special plot of vines and aged in small French oak barrels. 2016 is a top Bordeaux vintage.

Description

Although this quite a full-on red with plenty of what you might call 'structure', it has bags of attractive fruit, a creamy texture and balancing freshness. Drink or keep for a a few years - whatever. Decanting recommended but not essential. £14.75 a bottle.

The back label: 'A blend of 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon from a single vineyard, this medium to full-bodied red was aged in French oak barrels. Lovely to drink young or keep it for a few years. Best decanted but not essential.' 14% 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.

Nature was kind to Bordeaux in 2016. It was a bumper crop for many, a fine harvest, with red - and white - wines of exceptional quality. A wet spring was followed by a bone-dry summer, during which we had just a tenth of the normal rainfall over a 12-week stretch. The vines enjoyed some overdue refreshment thanks to heavy rain on the night of 13 September. It cleared up soon afterwards and we then had dry and sunny weather for the build-up to the harvest and for the picking itself, with just one more night of rain on 30 September during a crucial four week period. A glorious vintage to rival 2010 - and we couldn't remember a better summer for holiday makers.

  • pics at the Chateau

“This is a beautiful château run by London rat-race exiles Angela and Gavin Quinney. They make excellent red, white and rosé, all marked by their sheer drinkability and by their true sense of Bordeaux style. Affordable, approachable, Bordeaux needs another 100 Bauducs – and fast.”
