Description

Three 2016 clarets - left and right bank. All ready to drink now or can be kept.

From the Wine Society:
Bordeaux has produced an abundance of superb wines in 2016. The best reds exhibit real energy and vitality, with pure bouquets, silky tannins, plenty of mid-palate fruit and impressive length of flavour. Slightly lower than average alcohol levels, allied to the perfumed fruit and ripe tannins that typify the 2016 vintage, will ensure wines with excellent balance and capacity to age.

Château Ampélia, Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux 2016
An outstanding wine from François Despagne’s tiny property on the plateau of Castillon, enhanced this year by some fine old-vine cabernet franc. Ripe, opulent but with exceptional balance, this is one of our top picks in its price category.

Drapeaux de Floridène Rouge, Graves 2016
With a pure, berry fruit bouquet and a hint of vanilla this is a beautifully balanced blend of 60% cabernet sauvignon and 40% merlot grown on clay-limestone and gravel soils. The wine was aged for 12 months in small French oak barrels and displays classic Graves succulence and a long, cool finish. Delicious now but there is no hurry to broach this.

Château Lalande d’Auvion Médoc Cru Bourgeois 2016
Owned by the Bénillan family for six generations, this small but perfectly formed estate creates exquisitely balanced Médoc. Current owner, Céline Bénillan, has excelled herself with this bramble fruit-laden, silken textured star.
