The wine has a most attractive nose of black cherries. Lifted and pretty, with some minerality and more richness and depth. A structured palate, with generous cherry and raspberry fruit, ripe tannins and a touch of vanilla and spice on the finish. Beautifully balanced. A serious wine with depth and complexity.
Scratch the surface of Bordeaux and all is as it seems. Beneath the glamour of a small, elite cartel of 50 Grand Cru estates and their fairytale Châteaux are close on 10,000 producers battling for survival - their voices struggling to be heard. Bordeaux Confidential is the story of eight such producers - a story of hard work over privilege and the love of wine over the love of money. It's a story that deserves to be told. After all, great quality, affordable claret - with history and a unique sense of place - is one of life's most thrilling drinks.
