Regular price £12.90
Value for money – organic
Not only do the team at Château Lauretan produce some of the best value Bordeaux wine available, they also boast one of the best views the region has to offer. Their vineyards, which have been certified organic since 2013, sit atop a rocky outcrop overlooking the Garonne River, providing the perfect vantage point for keeping an eye on all the goings on up and down the valley. The Château, which is named after the family who lived there during the 17th century, comprises 26 hectares of vines.
Their Bordeaux Supérieur is a Merlot dominated blend, backed up by Cabernet Sauvignon as well as a small dose of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Aged in a combination of oak barrels and stainless steel tanks, the resulting wine possesses a fine nose with aromas of red berries, leading to a supple & elegant palate.
