Bordeaux is one of the world's largest and most famous winemaking regions, producing wines that range from 'everyday drinking' to some of the most luxurious, exotic, and expensive on the planet!

This collection is a classic example of how good the 'everyday drinking' wines from a great Bordeaux vintage can be. Velvety, plummy merlot rich claret that won't break the bank. Critic James Suckling described Bordeaux's 2016 vintage as "exceptional", and with all its luscious, velvety fruit, this Gold winners are outstanding value.

Collection includes:

2 x Calvet Prestige Cuvée Bordeaux 2017 (France)

AWARDED 90/100 POINTS: Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Mar 2019

"It is attractively fruited and nicely lifted on the nose showing dark plum, cherry, toasted almond, thyme and warm spice aromas, followed by a succulent palate that is elegantly weighted and supple. It is fruit expressive and silky, well supported by fine-grained tannins, finishing long and delightfully dry. Well composed and balanced. At its best: now to 2021" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Mar 2019

A lovely ruby red colour the Prestige Cuvée has loads of plummy fruit with subtle notes of vanilla. Fleshy and well-balanced witha supple and delicate flavour. Delicious!

Calvet Prestige is modern in style and are a tasty reminder that Bordeaux isn't only about the glamourous big name Chateaux with equally big price tags.

2 x Château Grand Désir Bordeaux 2015 (France)

Awarded 4 STARS: Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Jun 2018

Awarded Silver Medal: Concours de Bordeaux 2016

"Attractively fruited and inviting, the bouquet shows dark fruit, black olive, toasted almond, cigar and warm spice notes. The palate is juicy and beautifully rounded, delivering bright fruit flavours and fine texture, leading to a pleasingly dry finish. A superbly-priced Bordeaux offering delightful drinking. At its best: now to 2020" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Jun 2018

Grand Désir is a classically styled, Cabernet Sauvignon dominant release with Merlot and a splash of Cabernet Franc adding depth and roundness to the palate. Blessed with excellent fruit weight and lovely, silken tannins for a wine in this price bracket.

2 x Château Haut Pougnan Bordeaux Cuvée Prestige 2016 (France)

Awarded Gold Medal: Concours General Agricole Paris 2018

Awarded Gold Medal: Gilbert and Gaillard 2018

Awarded Gold Medal: Concours Mondial des Feminalise 2018

Awarded Gold Medal: Concours International de Lyon 2018

Awarded Gold Medal: China Wine & Spirits Awards 2018

Awarded Gold Medal: Femmes & Vins de France Concours 2018

Bordeaux produced lovely, fruit forward wines in 2016. Just take this velvety, plum rich claret from the team at Château Haut Pougnan, beautifully situated in the Entre Deux Mers in Bordeaux.  This delivers amazing value for money. Merlot dominates this up front 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.  It has won an amazing 6 Gold medals to boot!
