This fantastic red Bordeaux blend of 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 10% Cabernet Franc is a great value, everyday drinking Bordeaux that has finesse and flavour too. It shows aromas of blackberry, red currants, and ripe cherry from the Merlot, along with notes of vanilla and spice from 6 months’ ageing in French oak barrels, plus well-structured tannins from the Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. It is great now but will keep till summer 2023 easily. It pairs well with a hearty beef bourguignon or duck cassoulet. A classic Bordeaux at a wonderful price! 13.5% ABV.
Settled in the medieval village of Rions, at the heart of Premières Côtes de Bordeaux. Château Haut-Rian is a beautiful, family-owned 85-hectare vineyard. Michel & Isabelle Dietrich decided to settle here 30 years ago after discovering the availability of high quality and complex soils in the region. Along with their daughter Pauline who runs all day-to-day operations of the winery, the family have been growing and producing wines that are a true reflection of all that the Entre-Deux-Mers region has to offer.
