Ramage La Batisse is a little known gem from next door to Lafite and Mouton Rothschild. A Cru Bourgeois Haut-Médoc with a long list of international accolades, this classic vintage 2016 has a firm structure to support all the dense fruit richness.

Given that this family owned estate lies a short stroll from Châteaux Lafite and Mouton Rothschild, you might expect its wines to command hefty prices. Fortunately, Château Ramage La Batisse is just outside the Pauillac boundary, making its price far more attractive to the average wine lover. Georges Pauli, a winemaker of world renown, is consultant here and in 2016 has made an impressive wine that is cellaring well. It has all the classic hallmarks of Haut-Médoc claret with lovely depth of blackcurrant and plum fruit, layered with oak, firm tannins and finesse. An impressive dinner party claret, especially in magnum, to serve with a game casserole or rare beef. Best to decant an hour or two before serving to let all the flavours open out.
"Wow! Smoke and leather nose, wonderful tones of vanilla and berries. Just sumptuous"
