Right Bank Bordeaux Trio
- L'HOSPITALET DE GAZIN - POMEROL 2014
This has a dense, virtually opaque colour and its immensely stylish bouquet shows earthy, red-fruited perfume touched by a dash of oak. The palate shows lovely weight with dense generous fruit flavours, excellent concentration, spice and earthy tannin with an intense, pure and fresh finish. Enjoy with kangaroo or eye fillet, dark chocolate or aged hard cheeses. Drink now to 2025+. 90% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Cabernet Franc.
- CHATEAU LA GRAVE - POMEROL 2008
The bouquet truly doesn’t reflect this wine's age; it is developed and complex, showing spiced fruit aromas of black forest cake and dried red roses with a hint of cocoa nib. The palate presents red and black plums, and cassis before a finish of earthy, dried thyme. Enjoy with eye fillet, slow-cooked roasts, tomato-based pasta and hard cheeses. Drinking now up until 2025. 85% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc.
- ANNONCE DE BÉLAIR-MONANGE, ST EMILION GRAND CRU 2016
The Colour is a medium to deep garnet-purple with the bouquet revealing warm red currants, black cherries and mulberries with touches of cigar box and dried herbs. A medium-bodied palate with pleasantly grippy framework and dense but juicy red to black fruit, followed by smoked meat spice and satisfyingly savoury finish. 90% Merlot - 10% Cabernet Franc
