A great Bordeaux that illustrates you don't always need a grand appellation on the label to bag a great wine. This is a fabulous, richly plummy and well-structured claret that was made to go the distance. It will age gracefully for a few more years yet, although it makes very pleasing drinking now too. Just open an hour or so beforehand and decant if you can. It's from a small 27-hectare estate founded in the 1940s by the current owner's grandfather. On the limestone and clay soils, the Leroux family grows pure Merlot that sings of creamy plum, cedar and roses in this wine. All fruit, no oak, and beautifully balanced, with great length, a top-vintage red to savour. Hits the spot with roast chicken or veggie kebabs with spiced couscous.
