CHATEAU MAHON-LAVILLE BORDEAUX SUPERIEUR JEAN CHRISTOPHE BARBE

Jean-Christophe's original 1.3 hectares of red grape varieties are located at Laville on a plot of land called Mahon, hence the name. Soils are predominantly clay and the average age of the vines is 15 years. The work that goes into it - leaf stripping to expose the fruit, crop thinning before véraison to lower yields and aid ripeness - all add to this great value wine.

Bordeaux had a wet spring, which proved to be helpful given the drought that was to follow. The flowering in early June was remarkably successful, with almost 12 weeks of hot summer weather. 2016 was a later harvest and in keeping, in terms of timing, with what are called 'classic' Bordeaux vintages.

The grapes were hand-picked then spent three to four weeks on skins fermenting at 28°C-30°C. Malolactic fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks at temperatures of 22°C followed by ageing for 12 months in barrel.

Astonishingly good value for money from this Sauternes based winery.   A classic Bordeaux nose with ripe, supple fruit on the palate and a grip on the finish that reminds you that you are drinking a claret.
