Right-bank gem from 2016 “an outstanding vintage for Bordeaux” James Suckling
As an introduction to Claret Club, you can save £75 on a case of Château Le Lion d’Or 2016 – yours today for just £7.74 per bottle with free delivery.
Château le Lion d’Or comes from vineyards in Blaye on Bordeaux’s right bank, home to luscious, Merlot-rich clarets at affordable prices. As is typical of the glorious 2016 vintage, this is laden with ripe, lavish fruit supported by supple, velvety tannins.
Here’s Mimi’s tasting note... “Made from 100% Merlot, this has a lovely, delicate nose of fresh, just-ripe plums. It’s soft and plummy on the palate with a hint of savoury spice adding complexity. With a fresh, vibrant finish and polished tannins, it’s delicious now but will no doubt develop further over the next two years.”
