Here’s a very special offer on a sublime Bordeaux that you MUST not miss! Cru Bourgeois wines sit just below the famous and sought-after Cru Classé wines and are where the savvy Bordeaux collector looks – especially in ‘wow’ vintages such as 2015. This lavish example from Château Méric is a truly fine example!
This silky, velvety, layered and complex blend of Cabernet, Merlot and Petit Verdot comes from the Médoc region, home of Pauillac, Margaux, Saint-Julien and Saint-Estèphe “the most famous red wine district in Bordeaux, and possibly the world,” (Master of Wine Jancis Robinson).
In excellent vintages like 2015, it is very much worth seeking out the smaller estates that are doing well, as these offer the best value. As Jancis Robinson points out, “Some of the best value in Bordeaux is to be found in wines with a more clear-cut pedigree, wines known quaintly as Crus Bourgeois”. She has rated this one an impressive 16.5 out of 20!
With our own cellar in the region (and a history of trading in Bordeaux going back to 1969) we are well placed to discover great parcels like this one. It’s a truly delicious example of the elegance, intensity, and complexity that wines from the Médoc offer – and it’s available to you at a truly impressive price!
Deep and dense with a purple hue, you’ll love this wine’s intense aromas of blackcurrant, plum, woody cedar and spice. The palate is elegant and smooth with velvety rich tannins and a long, silky finish. Serve with fine red meats, duck confit, or hard cheeses.
This is the kind of small-estate Bordeaux that normally never leaves France (it’s that good!). Very few cases imported, so secure your share today!
