Château Bauduc Bordeaux Supérieur 2016

17.99

Description

This is a classic Bordeaux blend of 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon. Medium bodied and partially aged in oak, it’s easy, fruity and supple enough to drink quite young. A French bistro sort of wine – grippy, gorgeous and very moreish!

Owner and winemaker Gavin Quinney: “Nature was kind to Bordeaux in 2016. It was a bumper crop for many, a fine harvest, with red – and white – wines of exceptional quality. A wet spring was followed by a bone-dry summer, during which we had just a tenth of the normal rainfall over a 12-week stretch. A glorious vintage to rival 2010 – and we couldn’t remember a better summer for holiday makers.”

Château Bauduc is a pretty 80-hectare estate, with woods and parkland surrounding the family home and its Merlot, Cabernet, Sémillon and Sauvignon vines. The estate’s Sauvignon Blanc has been the house white at Gordon Ramsay’s three Michelin star restaurant for the past twelve years, a ‘special selection’ at Rick Stein’s for a decade and, more recently, the house white at the über-trendy Hotel du Vin.

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."
