Chateau Bertinerie 2016 Côtes de Blaye Bordeaux
This super smooth, textbook claret is exactly what one would wish from a Bordeaux at this price. Ripe fruit with good structure and length with a dry savoury finish that gives it food-friendliness. Benchmark.

Owned by the Bantegnies Family for two centuries, this Château benefits from the latest viticultural techniques including Lyre training for the vines, said to improve photosynthesis and thus grape quality. With Lutte raisonee and hand harvesting practised, the quality of the fruit is second to none, resulting in wines of depth and complexity with great vinosity.
