In this special bottle, you'll be experiencing Merlot and Cabernet Franc at their very best. A red wine that's been awarded Saint-Émilion Grand Cru status, Château de Brens is very classy Bordeaux at its best.

Just nine hectares of vineyard provide the precious grapes for this wine, which gets a very smart 18 months oak ageing. That's designed to let you age it if you wish, but it'd be no crime to drink this supple, powerful wine right now.

Blackberried fruits, liquorice, vanilla, spice... it's got it all in spades.

What's special about Bordeaux's 'right bank'? Think Merlot-dominant red wines. In fact, just think these are among the very best Merlot wines from anywhere on the planet. Too expensive for your tastes? Given their quality, not a bit of it.

The Producer

Just 9 hectares of land make up the Château de Brens Estate in the exceptional terroir of central Saint-Émilion.
The vines are tended to like a garden to ensure they produce wines worthy of this exceptional terroir.

The Winemaker

Supervised with passionate dedication by the vineyard owners Chantal and Peter Watts the winemaking process culminates with ageing the Merlot and Cabernet Franc for 18 months in barrel.

The Region

A blend in which Merlot predominates, typical of the wines around Libourne, this 2012 is an impressive wine bearing the hallmarks of great craftsmanship in the art of barrel-ageing.

Blackened Steak With Red Wine Jus

A simple rump steak calls for a full-bodied red to square up to the dense structure of the meat. Head to rich, structured reds with some oak ageing to give a touch of spice, just like Château de Brens 2012 from Saint-Émilion.

Roast Lamb With Herb Butter

Lamb is a classic match for Bordeaux reds with the balanced tannins and cedary flavours of the wine perfectly matching this simple, easy roast. Try the Château de Brens 2012.

Tartiflette

The rich combination of potato, cheese, bacon and garlic could stop anyone in their tracks. So we'd recommend a Saint-Émilion as they have good fruit flavours and acidity or structured whites which will both cut through the delicious stodge!
