Description

This the new, delicious vintage of our special cuvée red, made with lower yields and aged in French oak barrels. Fuller bodied than our classic Bordeaux Supérieur red and it deservedly sells for a modest premium, we think. The 2020, an excellent year for Bordeaux and indeed for this wine, is drinkable now but it will age well for a good few years too.

The back label: "This special cuvée was made from 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon from the same block and aged in small French oak barrels. A medium to full bodied red, it's ripe and supple enough to drink young or it will develop well in bottle over many years." 13.5% vol.

A new arrival in the UK in November 2023, the price of this latest vintage reflects the new UK duty rate.

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

Château Bauduc Les Trois Hectares (Bordeaux Supérieur) 2016
The blend is, as always, 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon. A lovely evolution on the nose here, showing the benefit of keeping red Bordeaux back a few years, whatever the appellation and status. It offers smoked and toasted fruit, with nuances of liquorice, dried black olive and sweet leathery notes. A beautifully balanced palate, fresh and tense, sinewy in structure but with a really finely poised balance, savoury and full of energy. Really convincing, and giving plenty of pleasure now with a decant, although there is a ripe and tightly grained structure here which suggests there is five or ten years in this yet. Very well done. From a 2021 Update. 92/100
