This Château has always had a very strong following amongst our customers here in the North of England - no doubt due to its continued policy of offering good Claret at a competitive price to its peers. A very good wine that will age well.
A very rich and opulent wine, the result of a larger proportion of Merlot in the blend. Blackcurrants and morello cherries give a really opulent feel to the wine, the acidity seems relatively low which enhances the moreish mouth feel. This wine will no doubt be very popular.
Delicious with beef ribs with mushrooms, bacon and potatoes.
