Château de l’Abbaye de Saint-Ferme - Via From Vineyards Direct

A Bordeaux Supérieur from a great vintage that punches above its weight - via FVD

Bordeaux does vintage perhaps better than almost anywhere else - and 2010 was one of the great years.

This Bordeaux Supérieur (slighty riper fruit than AOC Bordeaux) is already seven years old and, drinking nicely now, will continue for another 5+ years.

It is also good value for its quality and maturity.

Château de l’Abbaye de Saint-Ferme 2010 Bordeaux Supérieur (£10.95, FVD) fresh, ripe bramble and forest fruits, spices and dried green herbs with some truffley earthiness; supple with well integrated tannins. Very harmonious and drinking well now.


Good.

Match with roast red meat, especially darker game.
