Best In Bordeaux

Summer has finally landed so we're not going to keep you from it for long. June was a very month in which we welcomed a few new wineries into our portfolio. Last week we introduced you to our new Rosé house and today we want to put our new Bordeaux in the spotlight!!

We've two new Saint Emilion Grand Crus from an exceptional vintage, probably the best in Bordeaux in 20 years. They have both been highly praised by some wine critics and for one week only, we're giving you the chance to discover these crackers at wholesale prices!!

Chateau Magnan Figeac Saint-Emilion Grand Cru 2016

Was €35.95 Now €29.95

A stunnning "ready to drink" Bordeaux made with a blend of 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc, it's full bodied and full of character.

Editors Choice - Wine Enthusiast 93 Points - "From one of the many estates to carry the name of the Figeac sector of Saint-Émilion, this wine is a blend of Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Tannins are already integrating into the sumptuous black fruits. Generous and opulent, it reflects the vintage" Roger Voss.

Chateau Cormeil Figeac Saint-Emilion Grand Cru 2016

Was €44.95 Now €37.95

One for the connoisseurs, an elegant, suave, intense and structured wine with, a beautiful aromatic complexity and subtle oak. An "old fashioned" real Saint Emilion.

Wine Enthusiast - 91 Points "This powerful and dense wine shows the richness of Merlot in this vintage. The texture, rich chocolate and black-fruit flavors and dark tannins contribute to a sense of strength and suggest great potential." Roger Voss

1 x Enjoying Bordeaux in Georgian Ireland - A History Of Amiable Excess By Patricia McCarthy
An interesting read.. This book explores Ireland's love affair with Claret, which began in earnest with the Irish families in the wine trade in Bordeaux in the early 18th Century. It deals with questions like - what lengths did men go to in purchasing the many fashionable wine accoutrements used in the traditionally "male" dining room? Why did "toasts" figure so prominently, not just at dinner parties in mixed company, but particularly among male groups in clubs and associations? The "Irish Wine" trade fostered not only a reputation for excessive conviviality, but created a healthy profit for its merchant importers
