Six Bordeaux Communes Case
A harmoniously balanced, fully mature left bank claret from vines just outside the Listrac appellation. The Bordeaux has a cedary bouquet, with appealing sweet-savoury notes on the palate. Exceptionally good value.
These vines are brilliantly sited, directly across the Gironde from Margaux. The class was evident in our Wine Championship tastings; or to put it another way, as one buyer did, ‘This. Smells. Awesome!’ Attractive savoury fruit and fine, grainy tannins mean that this will stand up to food brilliantly.
A soft, perfumed blend of 60% cabernet sauvignon and 40% merlot displaying notes of violets and leather, with satisfyingly round tannins and a smooth finish. Fully mature claret from the top-notch 2010 Bordeaux vintage.
A generous and velvety Bordeaux red made by the highly regarded Jean-Michel Baudet. Two-thirds merlot with the balance cabernet sauvignon and a splash of malbec for added richness.
A classy wine from a small, well-run estate close to Saint-Emilion. Mainly merlot, but with some excellent old-vine cabernet franc, which adds depth and complexity. Beautifully balanced Bordeaux.
This is a little-known gem for wine drinkers who like fine, well-built claret at a reasonable price, and which ages extremely well. It is the cream of the crop of du Courlat which is owned, like Clos du Clocher, by the respected Bourotte family.
