Tasting Notes

According to the importer: "Château de Malleret was founded in 1597 by Pierre de Malleret in one of the finest left bank appellations, the Haut-Medoc. The property was then purchased by a well-known trader, Phillipe Frederic Clossman, whose descendants still tend the vineyards today. This historic estate symbolizes all the elegance and distinction of the greatest Bordeaux vineyards and is recognized for producing premium Bordeaux blends. The grapes come from 50 hectares of vines in Haut-Médoc, which are 25 to 30 years old. The soil is mostly sand mixed with gravel. Viticultural practices are tailored to each parcel individually and include the use of sustainable pest control."

    Incredibly solid wine. Very lifted aromatics of raspberries that evolves on the palate into more serious notes of cocoa and coffee, along with cassis and vanilla. Lots of complexity and perfect for having handy for any event or a dinner party.

    Consider 2016 a very lucky vintage in Bordeaux , which survived frost and hail. This gorgeous wine is pretty spectacular for such affordable and unbelievable low price. Dark fruits such as Cassis and black currant. Hint of Vanilla, roasted coffee and lush Mocha. It is a kind of wine you want to stash away as well as drinking it now since it is already very approachable.

    The second wine from this Haut Medoc property has great depth and concentration, with sweet dark fruit like black cherries, blueberries and licorice with notes of toast and herbs. The tannins give great structure while remaining approachable, and balancing acidity keeps things fresh and drinkable. At this price, the Baron can’t be beat for a middle-of-the-week dinner wine
