AOC Bordeaux Supérieur Château Couronneau
This wine comes from a very dynamic and forward-thinking estate that's one of the critics' favourites. Has wonderfully ripe black summer fruits from the Merlot grape, whilst barrel ageing gives it a creamy texture and sweet attack on the palate.

The enthusiasm of Bénédicte and Christophe Piat, owners of this estate, is positively infectious. In the years since they bought the property, they have won gold medals aplenty, received glowing reviews from Robert Parker and countless other recommendations in wine publications at home and abroad for their fruit-driven, supple wines. Located at the highest point of the Gironde, the estate’s chalky clay soil rests on top of steep chalky substratum – perfect for the merlot grape, which thrives in these conditions.
