Regular price £28.85
Château Bernadotte is a well-known Haut-Médoc property situated just over the border from Pauillac, some three kilometres inland from prestigious châteaux such as Grand-Puy-Lacoste, Batailley and Pontet-Canet. Up until 2012 it was owned by Pichon Lalande and it continues to produce exceptionally well-priced wines under the ownership of Hongkongese businessman Antares Cheng.
Deep ruby with a sweet damson and bramble fruit nose. The palate is rich, chalky and dense, with powerful ripe black fruits. Hints of spice and smoke come through on the finish of this plump, plush and juicy red.
