The latest vintage, 2016, of Petite Sirène was offered a few months ago and many cases left our cellars. As you will recall that this fabulous claret from a tip-top vintage comes from the acclaimed Château Giscours, third growth Margaux. Colour deep red and glistening, on the nose black fruits as well as ripe merlot within. This is a beautifully balanced wine, it has good acidity with ripe and classy fruit - something you would expect of a wine costing more than £20 a bottle. I put in an order for a case on its last outing and can see by attrition there are not many bottles left, shall order again for drinking over Christmas with my grown up children.

Last week we enjoyed a bottle with a game terrine, a recipe from one of the many books which my late sister Sue wrote: Muntjac (or standard venison if you cant get Muntjac), pork, chicken breast, pork fat, pistachios, juniper berries, chicken liver and a dash of kirsch. Whizz the ingredients in a food processor and cook in a terrine pot in its bath at 170 degrees celsius for 60 minutes. Full recipe photograph below.

Please enjoy both this lovely claret as well as the terrine.

Critic's review:
"From a corking vintage, its effectively the 3rd wine of Château Giscours (the much-loved Third Growth from Margaux) made by the same winemaking team. A blend of 70 per cent Merlot and 30 per cent Cabernet Sauvignon, its richly flavoured and succulent with red and dark berry fruit, whispers of vanilla and spice and a long, mouth-filling finish. Its an extremely approachable entry level claret with impeccable pedigree and reassuringly accessible price. In short, it's perfect." (previous vintage).

Really lovely balanced Bordeaux drinking beautifully right now. Plenty of red and black berry fruit and little hints of earthy maturity. Refreshing lively finish. A delicious bargain. (previous vintage)
