New Bordeaux wines for our April 2019 list include Blaye and Pessac Leognan


For the first time we have imported wines from the Blaye Côtes de Bordeaux appellation on the right bank of the Gironde estuary. Both are from the fully organic Château Frédignac; their Le Gabier 2016 is a lighter style Merlot/ Cabernet Franc blend which sees no oak whereas their La Favourite 2015 is Merlot/Cabernet Sauvignon matured in oak barrels. So La Favourite is deeper, longer ageing and has those typical “Cab Sauv” ripe black fruit flavours! For more details please browse our tasting notes in Bordeaux Classics.
New in our Bordeaux Prestige range is the superb Château Bardins 2016 Pessac Léognan.  A real prestige wine, this is a Merlot/Cabernet Sauvignon/Cabernet Franc blend, matured in oak for over 12 months so full bodied and complex. Pure class and elegance to savour over the next 10 years or more!
