Chateau Les Anguilleys, Medoc, Cru Bourgeois, 2015

"Cru bourgeois from Begadan. 40-year-old vines grown by Ch Vieux Robin.
Bright garnet. Appetising and well balanced. Neat with some stoniness - a sort of junior St-Estèphe? Now very approachable with real freshness but fruit too. Good stuff with real persistence. Not for the long term but awfully good for now. Drink 2019-2024 VGV, 16.5/20", Jancis Robinson, jancisrobinson.com, 11th November 2020

Les Anguilleys is a label of Château Vieux Robin in Bégadan. From halves of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot and from vines averaging about 40 years old, this has none of the coarseness of many Médocs, delivering a lifted perfume and harmonious red fruit with lots of flesh and ripeness. There's a traditional lead pencil note and a proper left bank structure, but this is ready - and rather impressive. Now-2024

Excellent wines sourced and chosen by the founder/wine expert, Simon Taylor. We were one of Stone Vine & Sun's very first clients and always buy from them. First-class knowledge and service.
