2019 Chateau Bourdieu
2019 Chateau Bourdieu “Flamboyant and deep, with ample, lush and fresh forest fruits, bramble and cassis, with cascading sweet spice swiftly following. A super, brooding wine which will shine brighter with time.” Decanter
Vineyards are meticulously cared for, yields are kept very low adding concentration.
This stunning effort is a high contender for our “Bordeaux Value of the Year”.
Deep ruby-purple in color. A little shy at first, the nose opens to a fantastic display of black raspberry and warm plum fruitiness, with accents of savory leather, tobacco leaf, allspice, cedar, and crushed violet. The palate is broad but firm, and loaded with chewy black fruit character that melds seamlessly into lingering spice box and fresh herbal hints. Long and well-constructed, this is a great bottle of Bordeaux. Drink now – 2029.
This Could Be The Bordeaux Value Of The Year!
Stand With Margaux and Pauillac At A Fraction Of The Price
We have has two great back to back vintages in Bordeaux, 2019 and 2018. The great Michel Rolland comments, “The wines of 2019 compared to 2018 are a little like how 2016 was to 2015 and 2010 was to 2009,” Today I bring one of the truly great buys from Bordeaux you can find! The 2019 Chateau Bourdieu has received a massive 97pts by Decanter and also is a Platinum Award winner by Decanter, the highest award. The wine can be had for 14.99 and has a huge savings of 60%. This is a great find! Chateau Bourdieu dates back to 1464. Located on Bordeaux’ Right Bank in the Cotes de Blaye region. The estates vineyards have a mixture of clay, limestone and gravel soils. Ideal for Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. The estate covers 180 acres and the vines average a mature 35 years of age. The property today is owned by the Schweitzer family who bring decades of winemaking passion.
Once in a great while a wine is made that comes out of no where and happens to be spectacular, way under-valued, compares to wines that are far more expensive and is better than most. This is that wine, a tremendous buy that I strongly recommend while supplies last.
