Château Bauduc ‘Les Trois Hectares’ Rouge 2017

Description

Winemaker Gavin Quinney: “Les Trois Hectares is an artisanal affair. It was made from vines with fewer bunches for greater concentration and harvested entirely by hand. Aged in French oak barrels, this is a tasty, darkly fruity and full bodied blend of 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon; a fairly powerful wine that’s opening up really well now, and best decanted if possible.”

Full, rich, toasty and packed with phwoar. Accessible from the off with 8-10 years ageing potential from vintage.

Listed at Rick Stein’s Seafood Restaurant in Padstow, Cornwall, and Gordon Ramsay’s 3 Michelin Star Restaurant Gordon Ramsay on the Royal Hospital Road, London.

Owner operators and English ex-pats Gavin and Angela Quinney fell for the lovely Château Bauduc, some 15 miles from the city of Bordeaux, in 1999. The house and the winery are surrounded by 25 hectares of pretty vineyards, where they grow Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon for their white wines, along with Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc for the reds and rosé. Some of their older vines date from 1947 and the family have replanted or planted 15 or so hectares more since 2000.

The estate's Sauvignon Blanc has been the house white at Gordon Ramsay’s three Michelin star Restaurant Gordon Ramsay in London, and a ‘special selection’ at Rick Stein’s seafood restaurant in Cornwall, for the last 20 years. Oz Clarke is a huge fan, stating, "Bordeaux needs another 100 Bauducs — and fast."
