A fantastic value Bordeaux red from the excellent 2009 vintage. This wine is a great stepping stone into bordeaux with ripe opulent fruits, dry and flavoursome. It does'nt get any better at this price level!
This family-owned estate, which was acquired in 1925 by the present owners great-grandfather, is situated in the village of Bassens just outside
Bordeaux on the right bank of the Garonne. The 18 hectares of vines grow in calcareous clay soils. The Bruguera family brings a special touch to
traditional growing methods.
