2016 Baron de Malleret, Haut-Médoc

SKU #1410841

According to the importer: "Château de Malleret was founded in 1597 by Pierre de Malleret in one of the finest left bank appellations, the Haut-Medoc. The property was then purchased by a well-known trader, Phillipe Frederic Clossman, whose descendants still tend the vineyards today. This historic estate symbolizes all the elegance and distinction of the greatest Bordeaux vineyards and is recognized for producing premium Bordeaux blends. The grapes come from 50 hectares of vines in Haut-Médoc, which are 25 to 30 years old. The soil is mostly sand mixed with gravel. Viticultural practices are tailored to each parcel individually and include the use of sustainable pest control."

This screaming deal encapsulates everything that is great about the 2016 Bordeaux vintage. This is smooth, sweet and glossy with lush raspberry fruit accented by cocoa and vanilla shadings. There is plenty of freshness and length along with ideal ripeness in this easy drinking beauty.

Consider 2016 a very lucky vintage in Bordeaux , which survived frost and hail. This gorgeous wine is pretty spectacular for such affordable and unbelievable low price. Dark fruits such as Cassis and black currant. Hint of Vanilla, roasted coffee and lush Mocha. It is a kind of wine you want to stash away as well as drinking it now since it is already very approachable.

Incredibly solid wine. Very lifted aromatics of raspberries that evolves on the palate into more serious notes of cocoa and coffee, along with cassis and vanilla. Lots of complexity and perfect for having handy for any event or a dinner party.

The second wine from this Haut Medoc property has great depth and concentration, with sweet dark fruit like black cherries, blueberries and licorice with notes of toast and herbs. The tannins give great structure while remaining approachable, and balancing acidity keeps things fresh and drinkable. At this price, the Baron can’t be beat for a middle-of-the-week dinner wine

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Cabernet Sauvignon and Blends

- Cabernet Sauvignon has come a long way from its role as a blending varietal, however dominant, in the wines of Bordeaux. Today it is the most planted red varietal in the world. Identified as a descendent of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, the late-ripening Cabernet Sauvignon needs to be planted in warmer climates to fully ripen. Its small berries can easily be identified for their distinctive blue color, thick skins and high tannins. And while the varietal has its own definitive characteristics: green pepper-like aromas and black currant flavors among them, it is perhaps most prized for its ability to convey terroir, vintage and winemaking. A relatively new varietal, Cabernet Sauvignon started making inroads into the wines of the Médoc and Graves in the late-18th century. Today it is also dominant in the up-and-coming Entre-Deux-Mers region of Bordeaux and can also be found in Southwest France. It is the companion varietal to Sangiovese in Italy's Super Tuscans and is planted all over Europe, stretching to lesser-known winegrowing regions like Russia and Lebanon. In the Americas Cabernet Sauvignon has found champions in every nook and cranny of California and among winemakers in Washington, where it complements plantings of Merlot. In South America, Cab thrives in Chile, but can also be found in smaller amounts in Argentina and even in Mexico.
Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
