Chateau Bauduc Bordeaux Superieur
A supple and quietly fruity Bordeaux red. Recommended, especially for weeknight, uncomplicated enjoyment.
2017 was the year of the late Spring frost and Chateau Bauduc had to be pretty selective about the final blend for this. Bottled in the summer of 2019, it has proved to be way better than originally thought. Medium-bodied with good balance and with a fresh, fruity side. Diam corks have been used on this for the first time as they eliminate the risk of whiffy cork taint.
The back label: 'This is a classic Bordeaux blend of three quarters Merlot and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon. Medium to full bodied and partially aged in oak, it’s easy, fruity and supple enough to drink quite young. Serve with good food.' 13.5% vol.
“Wonderful plummy fruit and liquorice and leather scent. Soft, feathery tannins and just the right amount of mid weight. Not hugely complex, but presses all the right buttons for this level of Bordeaux. Very pleasurable claret.”
