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

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.”
