Video Round-Up: Two Bordeaux's from Chateau d'Argadens

Video One: Chateau d’Argadens Bordeaux Superieur 2005
Maison Sichel acquired Chateau d’Argadens in 2002, with the aim of making it the benchmark Bordeaux in this price range. That objective was achieved with the 2004 vintage, but the 2005 is better again. There’s considerable time and investment in this wine too, with twelve months in French oak.

For the following wines, click on the links provided for each to view videos.
Video Two: Chateau d’Argadens Bordeaux Blanc 2007
A classic Bordeaux blend of Sauvignon Blanc, for aromatics and a bit of zest, and Semillon, for ageing potential and a lovely rounded, citrussy mouthfeel. Gold medal, Challenge International du Vin 2008.
Video Three: Simply Shiraz 2007
The philosophy behind these wines is simple. They are made with the least possible intervention by the winemaker, fermenting in the traditional way and with minimum filtration to maintain character and flavours.
Video Four: Bordeaux Classique Rouge 2007
A well made, well priced Bordeaux blend of the three traditional grape varieties. This is the more modern, accessible side to Bordeaux, still maintaining the core qualities and versatility when it comes to food.
Video Five: Farnese Pinot Grigio 2008
Moving to Italy, a well loved Pinot Grigio from one of the most highly rated and consistent wineries around. Personally, Pinot Grigio wouldn’t usually be my first choice, but this one is a real show-stopper!
