It is a smooth full-bodied and well balanced wine with a supple and delicate character.

This lovely claret wine from the Entre Deux Mers in Bordeaux delivers great value for money. Merlot dominates this up front claret with Cabernets Sauvignon and Franc giving support. There is plenty of ripe cassis and black cherry fruit practically leaping from the glass in this greatly enjoyable, approachable wine.

2 x Château Bernachon, Bordeaux 2016

Awarded Gold MedalConcours de Bordeaux

A classic blend of 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, 10% Petit Verdot. Château Bernachon is owned by Mr Jean-Claude Combret. The estate is situated in the Entre-Deux Mers area of Bordeaux. The vineyard covers 12 hectares. It is located on the the plateau of the village of Ruch, in the Castillon area, on the right bank.

Beautiful deep red hue. The nose is delicate with red fruit notes. On the palate, the wine is well balanced with spicy aromas. Chateau Château Bernachon has been made to be enjoyed in its youth but will flourish over the coming decade if cellared correctly.
