Made from 70 to 100 years old vines and subsequently matured in oak barrels, Brun Despagne is one of those rare Bordeaux at the generic level in that it really over-delivers on price/quality ratio. Strict fruit selection and hand harvesting from low-yielding old vines are practices more commonly encountered at classed growth level and the rigorous quality control bears dividends here. Predominantly Merlot, this is packed with silky plum and blackberry fruit and has a surprisingly dense and well structured finish.
