Brilliant Bordeaux - Case of Three
Give the gift of Brilliant Bordeaux.
This tremendous trio includes three hot tips from 2015, a fabulous ‘no-brainer’ vintage in Bordeaux that the Master of Wine Jeannie Cho Lee compared “to 2005 and 2009 in quality”, in which Decanter Magazine noted that “several châteaux have arguably made the best ever wines”, and one that caused Steven Spurrier to announce that “Bordeaux is back”.
When the Swedish industrialist Curt Eklund took over Château Fournas, he changed the name to Château Bernadotte in honour of a French soldier who had a stormy relationship with Napoleon Bonaparte and became the King of Norway and Sweden. It may not be a household name just yet, but it's blend of sleek Scandi sophistication and classic Claret should mean it won’t stay a secret for long. Especially when the critics have described the 2015 as “very plush” (James Suckling), “one of the standout Cru Bourgeois” (Jeb Dunnuck) and a wine with “a good future” (Decanter) that “shoots above my expectation” (Vinous). Joining that, we have selected the spiced and mocha-laced BriO from Cantenac Brown – described by respected critic Antonio Galloni as “a terrific choice for drinking now” – and neighbour Brane-Cantenac’s incredible second wine. We adore anything that Henri Lurton of Brane-Cantenac creates; this estate has really ramped up the quality, to the point that now it’s the winery that other winemakers in Margaux whisper about. Raise a glass to some utterly brilliant Bordeaux from a sensational vintage.
