Located in the heart of Saint-Emilion, certified organic estate Château d'Arcole has farmed 11 hectares of Merlot and Cabernet Franc on limestone and clay for more than 200 years. The grapes are hand-harvested and fermentations are with native yeasts and the wine is bottled without fining or filtration. The 2012 shows lovely aromas of blackberry and cassis with earth, spice and a touch of oak. The palate is balanced and bright with ripe red currant, blackberry and cassis liqueur, with firm acidity and light tannins giving the wine an attactive freshness. With time open the wine deepens and becomes more complex with earth, spice and chocolately black fruits, really lovely and long. Decant and serve cool if drinking now (this will improve with a few days open, re-corked) or cellar for five to fifteen years.
It's always a pleasure to drink a great Bordeaux such as Château La Grolet’s Tête de Cuvée, a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Malbec; it has complex fruit with deep savory layers not clouded by new oak and is certified biodynamic. The nose is dense with intense notes of strawberries and dark cherries with hints of red currants followed by turned earth and resinous herbs. The palate is soft with smooth tannins and fair acidity, showing more of a floral tone of violets and slight notes of leather. After some time open the wine begins to reveal itself; dark red fruit with figs, strong herbal character, and more pronounced florals with delicate tannins. An exciting Bordeaux that could pair well with leaner steak, pork chops on the grill, or savory chicken dishes. Andy Paynter
From clay and gravel soils over limestone in the Côtes du Bourg comes this lovely Bordeaux, roughly 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, certified organic and Biodynamic and produced entirely without sulfur-dioxide or other additives. Pure juice! The 2015 Sans Sulfites Ajoutés is an opaque red/black color with lovely aromas of ripe cassis, red currant and spiced plum with hints of cocoa and earth. The palate is dense and supple with blackberry liqueur, plum skin and ripe red fruits, finishing with firm, refreshing acidity. This is a pure and fruit-forward Bordeaux that's ready to drink - serve cool with anything from Coq au Vin to Steak Frites and flavorful cheeses, or simply enjoy by itself. DL
This 100% Merlot made from young vines in the Biodynamic vineyards at Chateau La Grolet is a delicious and versatile wine, showing lovely ripe cassis aromas with a soft palate of red fruits with plum and spice. Created to drink well young and particularly round and ripe in the 2015 vintage, serve lightly cool with charcuterie, stews, chicken and pork. Produced and bottled with no added sulfites - pure juice!
1986 Haut Bages Liberal — From the plateau de Bages, next to Ch Latour and Ch. Lynch bages and both Pichon Baron and Pichon Lalande, 5th Growth Haut Bages Liberal always delivers classic Pauillac cigar box rich bouquet and deep black fruit flavors at a fraction of the price of its esteemed neighbors.
This impressive Bordeaux comes from an ancient vineyard in Montagne Saint-Emilion, dating back to Roman times, owned by the Despagne-Rapin family since the 1930s. Now certified organic and Biodynamic, the vineyard is roughly 50/50 Cabernet Franc and Merlot grown on limestone with clay and sandy soils. The estate's second label, "Les Piliers," is a dense and well-structured wine in 2010 showing deep red/black color and ripe aromas of blackberry and cassis, dark chocolate and earth, framed in oak. The palate shows deep blackberry liqueur with prune, spice, graphite and citrus. The finish is quite long with pretty black fruits, mineral flavors and firm acidity. This is a solid Bordeaux and an excellent value - try decanting a few hours in advance, serve with a steak, pork or lamb chops...
This excellent organic estate in Pomerol produced an elegant, well structured wine in 2012 featuring lovely aromas of red currant, black cherry, spice, citrus and oak. With aeration the palate becomes fairly soft and supple with berry fruits, earth and mineral flavors, quite fine and well balanced. This is lovely now, preferably with 3 or 4 hours of decanting, best probably 2022 - 2030. Serve with steak with shallots, veal or lamb chops...

The Hubert family are owners of Chateau Peybonhomme-les-Tours in Blaye and Chateau La Grolet in Bourg. The farming here is among the best in Bordeaux, certified organic and biodynamic. The vineyards are a fantastic oasis of greenery compared to the rest of Bordeaux, and are located on slopes of clay over limestone giving the wines good concentration and firm minerality. From 70% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Malbec. Natural, wild yeast fermentations. Extraordinary quality here for the price. The 2014 Cote de Blaye Cru Bourgeois is a bit more forward than usual, showing deep cassis and red currant aromas, pure and ripe with hints of coffee, prune and spice. The palate is supple and deep with blackberry fruit, chalky minerals and terrific length. Serve slightly cool with anything from roast chicken to steak and full-flavored cheeses. Did we say this is a great value?
What's atypical about this delicious wine? It's a blend of Malbec and Cabernet Franc rather than Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, giving the wine a more supple palate and quite different fruit character. The 2015 has lovely, deep blackberry and cassis aromas with red currant, cassis and cherry on the supple, lush palate, with hints of earth and smoke. More "forward" than most Bordeaux, and showing the ripeness and beautiful fruit of the 2015 vintage, this versatile wine will pair beautifully with almost any beef, pork or lamb dish and is a fabulous value!
