Description

This is mostly Merlot, with a dash of spicy oak, and drinking well. The same wine as the Bordeaux Superieur 2015, by the way. £22.75 a magnum (150cl).

2015 was a terrific vintage, we think, especially for the Merlot-driven wines of Bordeaux’s Right Bank. This is a reasonably punchy Bordeaux that can be aged a few years, or drink it quite happily now.

The back label: ‘This is a classic Bordeaux blend of 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon. Medium bodied and partially aged in oak, it’s easy, fruity and supple enough to drink quite young. A French bistro sort of wine.'  13.5% alc.

See our nifty 'best to drink' graphic on the back label or our 'Restaurant listings' which show you're in good company.

2015 was a terrific vintage, especially for the Merlot-driven wines of Bordeaux’s Right Bank. We harvested the grapes in lovely condition at the start of October and the result is a smooth and quaffable red that’s easy to drink. This can be aged for a few years but we’re already drinking it now.

There are a few snaphsots of the harvest below in 'Pics at the Chateau' but there are more in a Photo Album here.

Earlier vintages:

“Wonderful plummy fruit and liquorice and leather scent. Soft, feathery tannins and just the right amount of mid weight. Not hugely complex, but presses all the right buttons for this level of Bordeaux. Very pleasurable claret.”

Richard Hemming MW, Jancis Robinson.com

“Today this is a model estate for Bordeaux, the white wines clean cut and vibrant, the reds increasingly good. And yet they remain affordable.”

Chris Kissack, thewinedoctor.com

“Red, pink and white, they are utterly drinkable, each possessing a classic, mouthwatering Bordeaux texture and easy going fruit.”
