2014 Château Morillon, Saint Émilion Grand Cru, Bordeaux

£20.50 inc. VAT

I can’t think of when I had so much pleasure from drinking a red Bordeaux, particularly one at this price!

Château Morillon is a St. Emilion Grand Cru and the property sits to the east of Saint Émilion. The blend is 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc and the wine is fermented in a mixture of concrete and stainless-steel vats. It is then matured for 12 months in 1-2 year old French barrels. It seems that because it doesn’t end with a five or a zero, 2014 is one of those forgotten vintages and thank heavens for that, as with a bit of trawling around you can find some totally delicious wines at a great price – and here’s one of them.

An absolute belter of a wine and one that wastes no time in letting you know that it’s delicious. This is a wine that you can pull the cork and enjoy immediately – and we all need that sometime. The aromas are just what you want from ‘Right Bank’ Bordeaux – ripe strawberry, fruits of the forest, touch of spice and cigar box – and on the palate it’s equally captivating with plenty of ripe fruit, smooth texture and a silky elegance. However, it’s the finish that really sold me on this as it maintains its gorgeous flavours but then adds a little something extra. Lovely!
