2015 Château la Bessane, Margaux
2015 Château la Bessane, Margaux
Few things in the claret-drinker’s life can be so appealing as a bottle of Margaux 2015 - especially for under £25 a bottle as part of our introductory price. Few things so irresistible as a beautifully balanced drop of cabernet sauvignon and merlot from another glorious vintage in this world-class patch of Left Bank real estate.
But blended into today’s offer 2015 Château la Bessane is another wonderful difference: 45% petit verdot. How is this different? With what is Bessane’s comparatively high percentage of this classic Bordeaux varietal there is an intensified level of violet aromas on the nose and spicy, black fruit flavours on the palate. And given this growing season’s blessing of long, warm spells, petit verdot ripened fully, luxuriously, providing ever more opulence and depth that results in a triumphant 2015 cuvée. How delicious.
A 2015 cuvée that came to us from our contacts in Bordeaux and one that was an instant, universal hit throughout the team at our Autumn Bordeaux selection tasting. But for just shy of £25 a bottle? We were reminded of how much we still love surprises.
You’ll be surprised too, and by how well it’s already drinking. Such that it’ll be a chore keeping these bottled delights tucked away, given they’ve still plenty in the tank for much graceful ageing. Which is why taking out the insurance of an added extra case is always sound policy.
A Margaux with an unusually high portion of petit verdot - 45%. An elegant style, with an inviting floral and herbaceous nose. The palate is medium-bodied with a core of plums and blackcurrants, with violets and sweet spice. Superb.
