OMG! What a tremendous value and from the excellent 2015 vintage! This is the real thing! From the Belloc family’s Graves estate 15 hectares of gravelly bench, and from only the best parcels ….. a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot! After a long 3-4 week maceration, the wine is aged for 18 months in a combination of new and used French oak barrique. Viola!
“The 2015 Château Brondelle has a lifted, floral bouquet with wild strawberry and cranberry scents that shows impressive detail. The palate is very well balanced with fine tannin, packed full of crisp, minerally red berry fruit and hints of bay leaf and white pepper towards the finish. This is an excellent red Graves from Château Brondelle that should give pleasure over a decade or more. – Drink 2019 – 2035” – 90-92 points, Neal Martin, Wine Advocate (April 2016)
