Mickael Moze-Berthon: Rocher-Gardat, Vieux Chantecaille and Gouprie, Bordeaux, France

Mickael Moze-Berthon makes wonderful wines, densely fruited and well-oaked, from no less than four estates, assembled over seven generations of family growers. His principal wine, is his Rocher-Gardat Montagne Saint-Emilion, from 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc grown on his seven hectares of vines on thinly-soiled, argilo-calcaire slopes. We sold many cases of his splendid 2010 and 2012...

Vieux Chantecaille, Saint-Emilion 2016

80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc, into 50% new oak. Mickael Moze-Berthon has only 1.25 hectares of land within the Saint-Emilion Grand Cru boundary, just across the road from the famed Pomerol property of Le Bon Pasteur, but as his cellar is outside the limits of the St Emilion Grand Cru appellation (one of those arbitrary rules) he can only label it as Saint-Emilion - so he is effectively delivering wine from a Grand Cru terroir at a more modest price.

Surprisingly fresh red fruit - bright strawberry flavour, great energy. The freshness hides the excellent mass and concentration. This is always a bold and vigorous wine but it's more elegant than usual in this perfect Bordeaux vintage. Benefits from decanting. Now-2026

Absolutely loving the sun case, what a great way to be introduced to new wines.

Just wanted to say thank you so much for sending my order of 2 x Domaine Begude Rosé to my son and daughter-in-law - I couldn't believe that they received it within a day of my placing the order with you. That is IMPRESSIVE, especially given the current trying times.
