With a Gold medal winning history, Château Bernot is just what fine, affordable petit château claret ought to taste like. In the great 2019 vintage, it offers lovely forward ripe fruit with elegance, finesse and classic structure. Excellent value.
The Bernard family have owned Château Bernot, in the ancient village of Saint Martin du Puy, since the 16th century. It’s been run by brothers Bruno and Pierre-Joel since 1981 and these days they’re returning to organic methods of farming. In the cellar, traditional winemaking techniques and modern equipment combine to produce a seamless blend of 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine has a ruby colour and great depth of flavour laced with dark plum, spice and cassis aromas. And thanks to the estate’s rocky subsoil, there’s also a fresh, mineral character that makes this claret a superb choice for rich lamb or duck. No need to cellar, it's great for drinking now. Decant and let it breathe if you prefer a silkier style.
"Classic claret – ripe fruit and firm, rounded tannins. Open early and decant for full fruit flavour"
