Chateau Sainte-Marie, Vielles Vignes, Bordeaux, France, 2017

£10.50

 

One the world’s most revered wine regions producing some of the most expensive wines known to humanity. Here we have a great value for money Bordeaux (not something that be said too often in our line of work haha). Predominantly made from Merlot with a deep, vibrant purple-red colour. Great body and texture this is a really well made wine.

Nose: Mulberry. Raspberry and strawberry. Beautifully ripe and fresh. Hint of grapefruit zest.

Palate: Dry on the palate with great intensity of flavour but with soft tannins. Bags of red berries and warming dark fruits. Lovely length and super with some roast lamb.
