Description

Out of stock until 24 March. 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.

Château Bauduc Les Trois Hectares (Bordeaux Supérieur) 2017
An upmarket cuvée, this blend of 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon has a really charming, intense and focused character to the fruit on the nose, with crushed dark cherry stone and cherry skin, along with a focused, sinewy, sooty rather than plush suggestion which seems right for the vintage, all tinged with notes of hawthorn and acacia. A nicely vigorous palate, with lightly degraded fruit, with leathery elements, tense with moderate texture, with a textural substance in the middle which really entices. It has substance, energy, freshness and a firm finish. Give this a few years and it will drink well. From a 2021 Update. 91/100

Chris Kissack, thewinedoctor.com. January 2021.

“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.”
