Rated 93 by Wine Enthusiast
This is sumptuously textured, rich wine with generous black fruits. Its structure and jammy blackberry flavors promise ripeness and richness for the future. With its tannins lying under the fruit, it should develop relatively quickly. Drink from 2024. (Editors' Choice)

Rated 92 by Decanter
Enjoyable, approachable with firm tannins and dark fleshy fruits, with a smoked edge through the finish. This is aged in 300l oak barrels, together with stainless steel and egg-shaped concrete vats. Certified organic and biodynamic as of 2019, so farming fully in this way during the 2018 vintage. Drinking Window 2023 - 2038.

Plump and juicy, with bramble-edged red currant and cherry paste flavors. Nice snap of licorice on the back end along with a touch of singed mesquite. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec. Drink now through 2030. 5,833 cases made.

Varietal: Red Bordeaux

The Bordeaux method of blending quality grape varietals is something which has long been imitated and envied around the world. Whilst there are six Bordeaux grape varietals allowed for the production of red wine in this region of France – Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Carménere – the most common and widely used combination involves a careful blend of the Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes, usually with a small percentage of Petit Verdot to boost the overall flavor and balance things out. This process accentuates the finer points of all these varietals, and takes the astringency of one type whilst rounding it out and mellowing it with the light tannins and fleshiness of another. The results are rarely short of spectacular, and are perfect for oak aging, where the flavorful magic of Bordeaux wine making can really take place, and the complex aromas and characteristics can truly come forward.

Region: Bordeaux

Of all the wine regions in France, the mostly highly esteemed and famous is surely Bordeaux. Most commonly associated with their superb examples of blended red wines, usually made with a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot varietals, Bordeaux consistently demonstrates that their mix of traditional and modern wine-making styles is the recipe for fame and success. The region benefits greatly from its humid climate, and the fact that its clay and gravel based soils are perfect for growing the fine grape varietals which flourish there. The region is split into quite distinct sub-regions, with the finest generally believed to be the Left Bank and the Médoc region, where many of the most well known chateaux are based and produce their wonderful red and white wines.
