Tour of Bordeaux Case
A ripe and generous Saint-Emilion from the very well-respected Bertrand family. This is a wine of intense dark fruit and liquorice notes, with svelte tannins and a long, generous finish. Particularly impressive in the 2016 vintage.
With attractive brambly scent and refined tannin structure on the palate, this is a rare example of a 100% cabernet franc from Bordeaux. The grapes ripened perfectly in 2016 to give an appetising, structured claret. From member favourite Chateau de Pitray this will continue to age well for several years.
A pure and perfumed red from a well-sited property in Cardan, south-east of Bordeaux. It displays lovely, fresh vibrant fruit, a hallmark of the excellent 2016 vintage.
Olivier Sèze was at the peak of his winemaking powers in 2012. Attractive, mature Médoc from a well-sited property near Saint-Estèphe. A blend of 49% merlot, 33% cabernet sauvignon, 15% cabernet franc and 3% petit verdot, it spent 12 months in barrel (one third of which were new) before being bottled without fining or filtration. This has a cigar-box bouquet and plenty of mellow, savoury fruit on the palate.
A classy claret from a fine vintage, structured but appetising with deep colour and plenty of sweet, brambly fruit. Top-notch Moulis from a property we have followed for over 40 years.
This is a tiny property at Capian, owned by the Courselle family of Château Thieuley. A fresh and appealing blend of 90% merlot, with 10% cabernet franc to add finesse and structure, this right bank Bordeaux red is deliciously drinkable with impeccable credentials.
