“2018 is an exceptional year for Bordeaux wines...I think it could turn out to be an all-time great” James Suckling
If you cast your mind back to 2018, you’ll remember it was an absolutely glorious summer, as was the case in Bordeaux. One of the sunniest and driest summers on record, the wines are rich, opulent and lusciously concentrated. It will be years before the top wines from this longlived vintage will be ready to drink but Château le Bournac is already drinking beautifully.
A blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, it’s brimming with rich black fruit and ripe plums. Richly flavoured yet full of freshness, it has all the characteristics of this excellent vintage at a remarkable price.
Please note, due to a stock delay, Château le Bournac will not be available to purchase online until Monday 23rd September. Please call 03330 148 212 to pre-order your Discovery Claret over the phone. Apologies for this delay.
