Château Les Barraillots Margaux 2015

£27.50

“Dans les grandes années, acheter de petits châteaux” (In the great years, buy little chateaux).  2015 was a beauty and it was virtually impossible to make a bad wine.  This means there is plenty of quality and value on offer from the smaller estates and this is no exception.  Inky purple in colour with ripe, juicy black currant and plum aromas alongside vanilla, cedar and a lovely floral note.  It is structured with great balance and is ready to drink now.

Château Les Barraillots

 

This 7 hectare property dates back to the late 1920s when Ferdinand Brunet purchased vineyard plots from Palmer and Durfort-Vivens. In Médoc patois ‘barrail’ means fence – the small fences at Château les Barraillots seperate the vineyard from the neighbouring growths. To this day, the Brunet family manage the estate and they are one of the few crus artisans remaining in Margaux.

Description

Grapes are hand picked, the fruit is gently crushed and has skin contact for up to three weeks in temperature controlled stainless steel and cement vats. 12-14 months in 20% new oak and the rest is stored in 4-5 year old barrels. Racking occurs every three months.
