Nicolas Thienpont

Chateau La Prade Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

2016 vintage. Nicolas Thienpont is a great winemaker at 3 Saint-Emilion Premier Grand Cru Classés Beauséjour HDL, Pavie Macquin and Larcis Ducasse +Grand Cru Classé Berliquet + a few estates in the Côtes de Bordeaux). This Côtes de Francs is probably the most humble in his stable, but it's a very serious wine. A blend of 88% Merlot and 12% Cabernet Franc, it features a dark red colour colour with a purplish rim, a complex nose with blueberry and strawberry fruit, flowers and cocoa powder. The fruit is packed in a tight ripe tannic structure, with balancing acidity and serious length. I would recommend to give this overachiever a few years of bottle age. Abv. 14,5%. Great value at 12,90 euro. — a year ago

Château Beauregard Ducasse

Graves Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

Value Bordeaux is surely all about vintage. The 2016s, even at this low a price range, are ripe, concentrated and characteristic wines that hit the spot for the money. It’s been a while since I had BDX of any sort, and for a quick roast dinner tonight this really scratched that itch.

The nose opens with blackberry, cranberry, dried cherry and cedar all in quite pleasing balance - even a hint of menthol. The palate is less concentrated and more supple in feel, with gentle tannins, good acidity and great ripeness to the fruit, and the finish very satisfying. All in all a terrific value Bordeaux from this bountiful year.
