The appellation d’origine protégée (AOP) for Bordeaux red includes some 500 producing villages. With so many wine growers and the need to unify a regional flavour while maintaining a strong tradition, the system allows the following grape varieties (in decreasing order of importance) : Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Petit Verdot and Carmenère. Since the AOP Bordeaux Supérieur covers the very same area as the generic Bordeaux thus the system grants the word “Supérieur” on the label when vines bear a lower yield and a higher sugar content in the must.

Typical and authentic flavour one expects from a good Bordeaux. Smoothed with 80% Merlot and straighten with 20% Cabernet Sauvignon in the assemblage. Classy and very good value.
Château Haut Pougnan 2014/15
Château Haut Pougnan has a reputation of consistent quality year in year out. The 2014 vintage is excellent and drinks better than the 2015 vintage for the time being. Its terroir must be very special as the effect on texture is evident every vintages with a superb velvety touch and a lovely vinous fruitiness. One of the best 2014 tasted so far in this price range. The quality price ratio is excellent.
Château de la cour d’Argent 2016
Excellent reputation. Tasting note to be edited soon.
