    Goedhuis, June 2020

    Situated just outside Libourne in Fronsac, La Fleur Coterie is a beautiful 8 hectare estate. It is a perennial Goedhuis favourite and the perfect house claret. The 2018 has lots of rich bramble fruits on the nose and a touch of spice. The fresh and supple palate is bursting with juicy black fruits. All the hallmarks of a classic right bank Bordeaux at a very affordable price tag.

    From a small 6ha estate in Fronsac, this 100% Merlot is a great example of the high quality:value ratio now being found in cheaper Bordeaux wines. Dark, bramble fruit with a hint of spice, there are some lovely red-cherry and raspberry notes on the palate. Soft, easy to drink, this has ripeness but is not remotely cloying. Great value.

    Decanter, August 2021

    This 100% Merlot comes from low yielding vines on a small domaine located on the Right Bank. It’s fresh, supple and juicy with beautiful red plum and bramble fruits layered over fragrant violets and a touch of spice, making it a rewarding match to the crispy duck cassoulet flavours.

Region

Bordeaux

When the Romans first planted a few vines on the limestone outcrops of St Emilion in the early years of the first century, and tasted what was, by all accounts, rather thin, bitter wine, they can hardly have imagined that the region's greatest red wines would become the most sought afterfine wines in the world. From the days in the seventeenth century when the then owners of Ch Haut Brion, the de Pontac family, became the first to export to the UK, selling their wine in their own tavern, the Pontac's Head, red Bordeaux or claret has been the Englishman's favourite. The wines of the 1855 Classification are merely the tip of the iceberg. Bordeaux AC accounts for about half of all wine produced in the area, from vineyards outside the regional or communal appelations and often blended by the negociant houses. Simpler beasts these although still clearly related to their more illustrious cousins - relatively light and fresh, full of fruit, with soft tannins making for delicious, and good value, early drinking.
