Chateau Gantonnet Bordeaux Rouge 2016

Love the fruit weight of this. Darkness in a purple glove. Cassis, mulberry, spice and woody herbs that meld together to give an overall picture that paints a thousand words…I stole that line…great value though and genuinely Bordeaux in terms of fruit & structure.

Chateau de Cerons Graves Rouge 2016

Dark purple red with violet hue. Elegant nose with fine fruit, blackberries, raspberries and hints of cassis, toasted aroma in the background with hints of mild spices…

This was a great year reflecting both quality and consistency. The weather was perfect. It was hot and sunny weather until late July. Cooler temperatures and a few showers in August were conducive to good, even ripening, and the grapes were picked in excellent condition.
The harvest and fermentation took place without a hitch. Merlot & Cabernet were picked in several passes under ideal conditions.

Chateau Picque Caillou Pessac-Léognan Rouge 2015

16.5/20, Julia Harding MW, www.jancisrobinson.com, "Deep crimson. Dusty, dark fruited and with a touch of cedary oak. Pretty closed on the palate, the tannins to the fore but there’s a smoothness and depth which bodes well even if it is not saying much at the moment."

A blend of 55% Cabernet, 40% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot aged for 12 months in 40% new Oak. Gravel (Caillou) soils, 22-hectares. Ploughed & maintained without herbicide, hand harvested & hand sorted prior to fermentation.

Chateau de Cérons is a lovely manor house built in the early 18th century on a terrace overlooking the Garonne River. The château is located across from a beautiful 12th century church. Xavier and Caroline Perronmat took over management of the family estate in 2012. They accepted the challenge of producing wines of the highest quality in one of the least-known, but oldest appellations of Bordeaux: Cérons. Chateau de Cérons has 26 hectares of vines on a plateau with deep gravel soil overlooking the surrounding area.

The 2016 Chateau Cerons Rouge is graceful seamless and very highly seductive. 2016 is a classic vintage, the tannins here are light and the acids keeps the wine at all times fresh & lively. The fruit set is like an iron fist inside a velvet glove brightly displaying dark cherry notes alongside red cherry charm.
