Superb value Merlot-dominated blend, from 40 year old vines planted in the excellent-value Lalande de Pomerol.
Named after the unique soils found that consist of deep layers of gravel and stone, red wines from Graves are aromatic and refined with an attractive mineral quality. This wine has lovely berry fruit on the nose and a supple texture. Dark fruit and spice dominate the mid-palate providing excellent depth that is supported by firm but ripe tannins.
Located 10 kilometres from the Gironde estuary in the Northern Médoc, Château Patache d’Aux has a rich winemaking heritage that dates back to the mid-17th century. The 2015 vintage has a plush, bright fruit character, with notes of blackcurrant and spiced black plum, and a powerful richness on the palate encased by structured tannins and a long, expressive finish.
Acquired in 1975 by the Miailhe family, whose winemaking history dates back to the mid 19th Century, Verdignan's impressive Chateau stands out in the landscape of the Médoc surrounded by over 40 hectares of estate vineyard. Much like in the neighbouring St-Estèphe, the village of Saint-Seurin-de-Cadourne benefits greatly from the influence of the Gironde Estuary. This wine is a fantastic example of the 2005 vintage, considered to be one of Bordeaux's finest years.
Aged for 16 months in French oak, and grown on vines that are on average 40 years old, this delightful 2017 from the producers at Moncets-Chambrun is a delicate but thoroughly enjoyable wine.
A fantastic value red wine hailing from the historic appellation of St-Émilion in Bordeaux. Made in the typical right-bank style, with Merlot as the predominant variety, resulting in an enticing inky colour and enveloping fruit profile. The vines have an average age of 30 years at Château Montlisse helping provide a concentration of aroma and flavour seldom found at this price point.
Located in Saint-Étienne-de-Lisse in Saint-Émilion and in operation since the 40s, the Château was acquired in 2015 by the Teycheney family, who are currently converting the property’s 8.66 hectares of vineyard to organic and biodynamic certification. The wine shows notes of vibrant red berries, blackberry fruit and liquorice spice, underpinned by elegant, fine-grained tannins and a lingering, fresh finish.
