2014 Château Baron de Bellevue, Côtes de Bourg, Bordeaux

£11.70 inc. VAT

It’s such a delight to taste Bordeaux that drinks like proper Bordeaux without over-ripeness and extraction. This is all about subtle balance and has a taste that conjures up visions of cut glass decanters, big open fires and vintage leather chairs.

A blend of 80% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon & 5% Cabernet Franc it’s bang on for drinking now. A soft and seductive proper claret that’s as reassuring as a pair of comfy old slippers.

From the first sniff I knew this would be good with its subtle ripeness of jammy, brambly fruit, warm spice and a hint of tobacco. Sometimes the taste doesn’t live up to the aroma but that’s not the case here. Soft ripe fruit, light tannins and smooth structure harmonise perfectly.

I think you’ll be hard pressed to find a better red Bordeaux under £10 a bottle.
