Gold, Concours Mondial des Vins Féminalise, 2019

Excellent value claret that shows just how gorgeously fruity Bordeaux can be. It’s from Haut-Brion trained Jean-Marc Sauboua at Le Chai au Quai and a top year. All Merlot, largely from the Côtes de Bourg, it’s packed with creamy ripe, plum flavour.

Bordeaux 2016 produced well structured clarets, dense with fruit. Just take this velvety, plum rich claret from the team at Le Chai au Quai, a cellar beautifully situated on the river in Castillon. Chief winemaker there is Haut-Brion trained Jean-Marc Sauboua, a Bordelais with a brilliant network of contacts. For this wine he used three parcels of fine Merlot grapes from the superior Côtes de Bourg vineyards. So this wine may have standard ‘Bordeaux’ on the label, but in reality it’s anything but. Crafted at Le Chai, with nine months’ ageing in oak barrels, the wine has smooth, ripe cherry and plum flavours with a creamy roundness. Below that are firm tannins for ageing. A versatile claret – serve with a pork casserole or roast chicken.
