Château Caruel 2016

Côtes de Bourg AOC
Château Caruel 2016
Bordeaux today offers superb, estate wines at excellent-value prices. The reason? Its great wines are sadly out of fashion. Snap up this lovely mellow claret from a sleeper vintage and a family estate in the Right Bank’s excellent Côtes de Bourg.

The red wine
A great opportunity to enjoy Bordeaux with eight years’ maturity, from one of the rising star satellite regions, Côtes de Bourg. This family property was founded in 1730 by Charles Auduteau and has been passed from father and son through the generations, with certain figures adding to the vineyards and the buildings. Today, Jacqueline Auduteau is in charge, along with her son, Thierry. Despite being overshadowed by the more fruit-forward 2015 vintage, the well-rated 2016 vintage has shown its worth. Wines from this year have been slow to develop, but today make delicious drinking. With smooth, plump Merlot fruit, tempered by blackberry and violet notes from the Malbec, this is a very appealing Bordeaux. A perfect partner for a Sunday roast.
