What makes this wine special

This is the flagship of Château Les Bertrands. This drop has a typical Blaye nose and is of dark purple color. Oak, tobacco, earthy with consistent tannins, this is an well balanced silky wine with good intensity. This 2016 is an excellent vintage. 

The story

Located in Reignac de Blaye on the right bank of the Gironde (Aquitaine region), Château Les Bertrands offers a wide range of Blaye-Côtes de Bordeaux Rouges & Blancs as well as Bordeaux Clairet and Bordeaux Supérieur Moelleux.
Over the years, successive acquisitions have brought the area of the vineyard to around one hundred hectares. Today, its various plots occupy plateaus and slopes ideally exposed to the midday and sunset sun on gravel, sand and pebble soils that rest on a clay-gravelly subsoil.

Further away from the posh Medoc area Château Les Bertrands offers get value for money.
