AOC Bordeaux Superieur Magnum
From the elegant Bordeaux region of France comes this Chateau Couronneau, made with Merlot grapes grown on the highest point of the Gironde. The result is a Merlot with rich flavour and excellent terroir, and a wine that makes for a perfect gift. This vintage is best when aged, between 3 and 5 years. The oak aging gives the wine a deliciously woodsy flavour, but without affecting the earthy notes for which Merlot is famous: tobacco, tar, cherries, plums, and dark red fruits.
Perfect for those larger dinners we all have at this time of year whether as a guest or host, this ticks all the boxes. Buy some to drink now and some to lay down for a few years - you won't regret it! 2010 was a superb vintage in Bordeaux.
This is a great gift, and we also have magnum gift boxes for that finishing touch.
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.
