Château Bauduc Bordeaux Rouge 2015

18.99

Description

Medium bodied and partially aged in oak, it’s easy, fruity and supple enough to drink quite young.This is a classic Bordeaux blend of 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon. Owner and winemaker Gavin Quinney: “2015 was a terrific vintage, especially for the Merlot-driven wines of Bordeaux’s Right Bank. We harvested the grapes in lovely condition at the start of October and the result is a smooth and quaffable red that’s easy to drink. This can be aged for a few years but we’re already drinking it now.”

A French bistro sort of wine – grippy, gorgeous and very moreish!

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 in London for the past nineteen years, a ‘special selection’ at Rick Stein’s for a decade and a half and, more recently, the house white at the über-trendy Hotel du Vin. Oz Clarke is a huge fan, stating, "Bordeaux needs another 100 Bauducs — and fast."
