French wines have been held in such high regard over the years that many of the names wine lovers associate with France come from the Bordeaux region. In fact, Bordeaux is the largest region for wine growing in the world. Each sub-region is so diverse that it is hard to address the region, or its wine as a whole.

Essentially a ‘simple’ Muscadet by label. The number of awards this wine picks up tells a different story; fresh and clean, with elegant floral notes on the nose, a palate packed with Granny Smith and greengage, leesy almond notes on the racy finish.
Ch. Poitevin’s gravel-based soils farmed with minimal intervention gives a Left Bank Bordeaux wine of great typicity, vinified with up-to-date techniques. More or less 50/50 Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, a pinch of Petit Verdot, with 14 months in barrel. A superb harvest in Bordeaux.
Pound for pound this is by far the best Burgundy that I’ve come across this year. Lovely, clean, ripe fruit – redcurrants and red berries, fine tannins and beautifully balanced; it has a genuine Cote d’Or character to it.
