Quite possibly one of GM’s best wines to date from a great vintage. Red and black fruit aromas. On the palate the ripe Merlot combines beautifully with a backbone of Cabernet all wrapped in ripe tannin and subtle oak. Rich yet elegant. Reminiscent of Cru Bourgeois claret at a much higher price. it's great now but will improve for many years to come.
Description

Details

One of the many benefits of us being in the little known Cotes de Duras is that we can’t charge the high prices of our neighbours in Bordeaux despite the fact that we think our wines are as good if not better. 

Nowhere is that more evident than in our Reserve red. with a nose of fresh red fruit and lightly spiced notes. A vintage of finesse..

Priced per case of six bottles
