Bordeaux Blend

Not a grape variety, but this blend needs explanation. Red wine from Bordeaux (Claret) is usually a blend of two to five grape varieties

Château Le Coteau, Margaux, 2016

Eric Leglise works one of the last family owned estates in Margaux, his parcels of vines in the commune of Arsac surrounded by vineyards belonging to grand names such as Giscours, Rauzan-Segla and Issan. His land just didn't get noticed in the 1855 classification, so his Margaux, though from identical terroir to his neighbours, sells for so much less.

Lovely, approachable scent of blackcurrant, tinged with vanilla; and then rather a silky mouthful of cooked strawberries and blackberries. Very expansive: already showing so well with gorgeous fruit over very supple tannins. So pretty - this doesn't rely on extraction and excessive ripeness for its appeal, just perfect fruit picked at the right moment - note the moderate alcohol. Now-2025

Our favourite wine merchant never fails to delight. Delicious wines at every price point - including a few gems below £10 in our favourites list. We’ve really enjoyed the sun case as an easy way to be introduced to new wines which we’ve then reordered. Friendly informative service completes the package.
