  • Château de Ricaud 2014, Cadillac, Côtes de Bordeaux, 14% vol, 75cl

    Château de Ricaud 2014, Cadillac, Côtes de Bordeaux, 14% vol, 75cl

    CL10

    To the south of Bordeaux city, near Cadillac, Château Ricaud boasts an exceptionally diverse array of soils. Impressed by its quality potential and the architectural splendour of the château, Alain Thiénot (of Champagne fame) bought the property in 1980 and has subsequently put in place a remodelling plan to transform the estate into a benchmark Loupiac and to create a Côtes de Bordeaux worthy of the finest wines.

     

    Château de Ricaud Cadillac is a blend of 90% Merlot,  8% Cabernet Sauvignon & 2% Petit Verdot from vines with an average age of 25 years. The wine was vinified in temperature-controlled stainless steel, followed by ageing in oak barriques, 20% of which were new, for 12 months.

     

    With its appealing dark ruby appearance, the wine is complex on the nose offering initial notes of strawberry and blackberry. Beautifully structured on the palate, full and generous with rounded, fleshy tannins.  Perfectly integrated oak character accompanies the long, delicately spiced finish.

    Château Rousseau de Sipian 2009, Cru Bourgeois Médoc, Magnum, 13% vol, 150cl

    CL40

    60% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon.

     

    This fine property comprises a beautiful 19th century house, parkland and some 15 hectares of vineyard. Under British ownership from 2000 until recently, a huge amount of investment has gone into restoring not only the house but also the vineyards and cellars. The results of this are plain to see.

     

    Produced from 20 year old vines, the grapes are hand picked and carefully sorted in the vineyard. Fermentation is in temperature-controlled cement vats for a period of 3-4 weeks followed by 12 months ageing in oak, 60% of which is new.

     

    The 2009 is very dark in appearance with a nose full of ripe fruit and elegant cedar notes. The palate is dry and broad with restrained cassis flavours, a touch of liquorice and warm spicy notes. The tannins are soft but support the wine well into the long finish.
