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 oaked red. Fermented in stainless steal tanks then aged for 12 months in French oak. ¼ was new to ensure that we didn’t overpower the natural fruitiness of the wine.
Priced per case of six bottles
