Chateau Bois Pertuis Bordeaux 2016
This is such an incredible value in classic red Bordeaux wine. Whether you enjoy Cabs, Merlots, Chianti or even fuller-bodied Pinots, this would be a terrific new discovery. Château Bois Pertuis is located just 20 km north of Saint-Emilion, in St Christophe de Double, near the Double forest, famous for its merrain oaks, used in barrel making. This area was formerly known as 'Les Hauts de Saint Emilion', and has had a very long tradition of wine-growing. The terroir at Château Bois Pertuis is made up of gravel and sand which brings finesse, and of clay which provides richness. Château Bois Pertuis produces a red Bordeaux wine that is well balanced and round. The blending of the noble varieties, mostly Merlot, results in a very fine wine, close to those of Pomerol and Saint-Emilion. The vineyard is planted to 86% Merlot, 13% Cabernet Sauvignon and 1% Cabernet Franc. Serve with your finest red meat dishes, French cheeses, especially Comté gruyere and pâté.

James SucklingA really sophisticated wine for a regular red Bordeaux, this has a classic, cassis nose and lovely ripeness on the palate, the soft tannins neatly balancing the medium-full body. Long and remarkably polished finish for the humble category. Drink or hold.
