With a long, soft, fruit-driven finish, this is Bordeaux at its very best. This wine has a deep ruby red colour with notes of cherries, blackcurrants and blackberries. The palate is spicy with liquorice, blackberries and jammy fruit flavours with a lovely silky fruity finish.

Buy this if...you love smooth, elegant reds.

A medal-winning, silky smooth red from Bordeaux.

The Producer

The wine estate of Chateau les Ragottes dates from the nineteenth century but remains of a vineyard going back to the Gallo-Roman period have been found in the immediate proximity. The Orsini family settled here in 1943 and at that time the estate consisted of three hectares of vines. Down the years the family steadily developed its winegrowing business and now, two generations of dedicated winegrowers later, the estate has grown to 18 hectares.

Winemaking

The average age of the vines is 42 years and are planted on clay and sand knolls; the clay has a high iron oxide content similar to that found in Pomerol. The vines are planted on slopes where they can reap the full benefit of the microclimate as well as their southern orientation.The grapes are all machine harvested and taken to the winery where they are sorted and selected ready for fermentation. Fermentation takes place in temperature controlled stainless steel vats after which the wine is pumped into small vats to settle and age.

The Region

France’s largest and undoubtedly best-known wine region, Bordeaux is synonymous with world-class (and often expensive) red wines yet it produces a full range of styles from sweet to sparkling, with wines to suit every budget. The city of Bordeaux sits at the confluence of the Dordogne and Garonne rivers, flowing in to the Gironde before reaching the Atlantic, a unique geographical feature that contributes to the amazing range of styles produced in the region. The rivers carve the region in to two distinct areas – the Right and Left Banks, and some surprising differences between the two sides.

Roast Lamb with Herb Butter

A simple roast lamb is a classic match for Bordeaux and also works rather well with Tempranillo or herby Syrah styles.

Game Sausage Rolls

Who needs a plain old sausage roll when you can have a game sausage roll? The ultimate buffet nibble, these will go nicely with a medium bodied red with rich, dark fruit flavours to pair with the gamey notes.

Irish Stew

Rich wintery dishes call for rich and robust wines. Think classic regions – Bordeaux, aged Burgundy and warming Stellenbosch.
