2014 Chateau Balac Cru Bougeois Haut Medoc - 6x75cl


This is the second time we've shipped from Balac as were were so impressed last time.  With vines close to Pauillac, this fabulous Merlot led wine has garnered many fans and has had some very good reviews, including:

Wine Enthusiast 90/100Médaille d'Or Concours Général Agricole de Paris 2017, Médaille d'Or Gilbert + Gaillard 2016 

The wine has an excellent depth and concentration with generous dark fruit character.  The 2014 is beginning to open up very well - give it a good hour decant and this will simply sing!

Made from the following blend 50% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Cabernet Franc that hail from a complex range of soils (Gravely soils (30%), loamy sands (40%) and limestone-clayey (30%)).  The harvest is handpicked with a traditional vinification style followed by 1 year in barrel.

As Vince Cable might have mistakenly said, whilst munching on a toffee......"Balacs to Brexit"!
