A new release of our special cuvée Bordeaux red, the 2017 is drinking really well already. Recommended.
A small production, flavoursome and fairly full bodied red that was aged in French oak barrels. It can be opened and consumed with pleasure now, with or without food.
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.”
This is a match for much more prestigious and expensive wines in this vintage. Les Trois Hectares 2013 red is listed at Rick Stein's - it's surprisingly good for a tricky year in Bordeaux - but this is better. Honest.

“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.”Oz Clarke’s Wine Buying Guide
