Our customers are always asking for boutique Bordeaux that won’t break the bank. So when our expert, Jean-Marc Sauboua, introduced us to Château de Nivelle, we knew we had to secure their acclaimed Merlot for you. We think you’ll be glad we did …
The Luiz family purchased Château de Nivelle in 1930, and have built their reputation on producing top-notch Merlot. Perched on a high plateau overlooking the Gironde River, the estate’s vineyard grows only Merlot and is perfectly situated to soak up all that brilliant French sunshine and those cooling river breezes. And in a year like 2015 – “a sure-bet vintage that ticks all the boxes,” writes Decanter – quality hit a new high.
You’ll find the proof in the awards cabinet. This stunning Merlot sports two gold medals from the notoriously tough Concours Agricole Bordeaux and France’s most prestigious wine guide, Gilbert & Gaillard. Look for aromas and flavors of ripe plum, smooth vanilla, and toasty spice. Elegant and velvety, it’s ready to enjoy now (especially with roasted lamb or mushroom risotto) but will cellar well for a few more years.
Between the family pedigree, coveted gold medals, and superb 2015 vintage, this silky Bordeaux is sure to sell fast. Limited cases – order your share today.
