AOC Bordeaux Supérieur Château Couronneau
Selected fruit from strictly controlled yields this fine 100% Merlot Bordeaux Supérieur is a glowing example of what can be achieved with dedication, focus, biodynamics AND a great vintage! Aged in large, old oak barrels to give a subtle vanilla and cream flavour. Crammed full of blackberry and damson with a nuance of florality towards the finale. Sumptuous fruit with enough freshness to ensure balance. Easy, relaxed and creamy in texture. A fine advert for affordable claret in the modern idiom!

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.
