The rich patchwork of chateaux in the Medoc produces ruby-coloured, well-rounded wines that are a fine accompaniment to many dishes. Expressive and elegant, with intense aromas mingling sweet spices, red fruit and liquorice. Supple and flavourful, very aromatic and complex with a good freshness on the finish. A success for the vintage, this wine offers a fine expression of the terroir.
Legende Pauillac is made from grapes grown in Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) own vineyards and, once again, the wines are made with the same attention to detail as for the Grand Vin. Generous and powerful, with good tannic structure and a long fresh, liquoricey finish. A classic, distinguished Pauillac.
Lovely red berry and darker fruit aromas, notably blackcurrant, plum and lifted violets with a touch of black olives. These characters continue onto the palate supported by layers of nutmeg, cinnamon and spice oak flavours, with a hint of vanilla.
A bright purple wine, with fragrant blackberry and dark plum notes on the nose. The palate is soft and mouthfilling, with juicy cassis, plum and blueberry flavours. It is medium bodied and fresh with supple, ripe tannins and a lasting, fruit driven finish.
Impressive richness and clarity of red and dark berries. Lightly spiced-pastry aromas, too. The palate has a very crisp, polished and groomed tannin texture, as well as super fresh flavors that carry long. Great wine.
A wine of finesse and elegance, expressing the exquisite bouquet particular to the Margaux region, the wines are outstanding for their suppleness, charm and finesse. Every vintage is specific to the terroir. Château d’Issan is a Third Growth of the 1855 Imperial Classification. The wine is made from the old vines in the Château d’Issan enclosure in the middle of the Margaux appellation. The soil here is mainly made up of surface gravel on top of a clay subsoil, which contributes to optimal ripeness and freshness in our two grape varieties, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Château d’Issan expresses the exquisite bouquet so characteristic of Margaux, and stands out with its suppleness, subtlety, elegance and long keeping potential that come from its unique terroir. Château d’Issan is aged in barrels for 16 to 18 months, half of which are new. Annual production is around 100,000 bottles.
This wine, under the same ownership as Margaux estate Mongravey, is a well-structured blend with 70% Cabernet Sauvignon. The 100% new-wood aging gives the wine an intensely toasty, dry character at this young stage. But the great black-currant and berry fruit is developing as well.
Chateau de Callac Graves Rouge comes to us from Graves, France. On the nose you will get notes of herbs and spices, along with a light barn smell. On the palate yo will get a light sweetness followed by a long, dry finish. Sharp tannins. Chateau de Callac Graves pairs well with either beef, lamb, or venison.
The harmonious balance of these grape varieties gives it a great finesse. The permanent work done in the vineyard in the purest tradition of Bordeaux produces a wine with a deep red color, a nose of ripe red fruits, slightly spicy with vanilla notes and delicate oakiness. On the palate the attack is supple with balanced tannins, fruity and very fresh. A balanced and harmonious wine.
A wonderful right bank discovery, this excellently-valued Bordeaux offers an abundance of red cherry, cassis, and dark berry aromatics. Nicely textured, this has good weight and a rich mouthfeel. There are also medium, well-integrated tannins and a long finish. Enjoy this gem now or over the next several years.
This wine is enchanting with spices like ginger and cinnamon blending in a sharpening of the nose. It is richly endowed with the taste of prune, it has a touch of chocolate and is mesmerizingly fruity. The taste lingers in the mouth. The tannins will develop in time. It is aptly named Excellence.
An elegant and fruity acquired from a delicate grape. A delicacy which on tasting becomes intensity. It provides your palate with complex, smooth and warm sensations. Chosen the world over for its strenght and harmony, it is personified in each and every bottle by the interpretation of its wine grower.
Raspberry red dress moderately supported. The fragrance takes us into the undergrowth, slightly gamey aromas, leather, a little rustic. The mouth is attacked by an explosion of spicy fruit, then the leather arrives, all wrapped in silky tannins. The whole is elegant and typed and will make the happiness of a steak with Bordelaise.
The charming ChÃ¢teau de Potiron maintains age-old traditions in its grounds overlooking the river Garonne. The winery limits the use of chemical treatments and stimulants, respecting the vineyard and producing high quality award winning Bordeaux wines.
