Intense in colour, on the nose and the palate. Ripe red fruit, mushrooms, green pepper leading to leather, tobacco. A great wine to lay down or save for s special event. Definitely worthy of decanting so open this a few hours before you wish to drink it.

The Producer

Château Argenteyre is the flower of its appellation. The 27 hectares are painstaking tended to by its passionate viticulturalist-owners, Philippe and Gilles Reich, allow this outstanding terroir to fully express itself.

The Winemaking

Traditional methods are used in the production of Chateau L’Argentyre. Green harvesting is carried out across the entire vineyard to ensure only the best grapes fully ripen. Harvesting and sorting are done by hand. The grapes are fermented in concrete and stainless steel vats then ageing in oak barrels for 12 months.

The Region

If you had to think of one wine region in the world as being home to some of the world's greatest red wines, then the Médoc would be a top candidate.

This is one of France's wine jewels, a Bordeaux region which has some of the planet's biggest wine stars within it. Not tiny by any means; in fact, Médoc together with neighbour Graves produce over 100 times the volume of Burgundy's great red wines.

Here Cabernet Sauvignon is king, creating some of the most praised and expensive wines around (although in the north, Cabernet Franc and Merlot do best).

Seared Angus Fillet with French Fries

For this most prized cut of meat, only the silkiest and smoothest of reds will do, think rich, earthy reds. From Medoc in Bordeaux, just like Château L’Argenteyre 2011.

Blue Cheese Burgers

Burgers are red wine are a match made in heaven but don’t forget the blue cheese element which could scuper your wine choice. To contrast the creamy, salty notes (not forgetting acidity) of the cheese, head to full, fruity reds with good acidity. A magnum of the Château L’Argenteyre will wash this recipe down very well.

Mediterranean Wild Mushroom and Lentil Salad

An easy to prepare mid-week supper on its own or as a side-dish with meat, this warm salad has plenty of gusty flavours which need an earthy, supple, silky red with soft tannins. Try a Médoc from Bordeaux with a bit of age.
