The 2018 vintage was another banner year for Bordeaux: “The word through the grapevine is that the quality of the 2018 Bordeaux vintage could exceed that of 2015 and 2016,and match that of 2009 and 2010,” writes Forbes.
You could plunk down a hefty chunk of change on a wine from one of Bordeaux's famous names. But for amazing value (especially from this in-demand vintage) savvy wine fans head to small, quality-focused, family-owned estates in the Côtes de Bordeaux district – and are rewarded handsomely.
Taste for yourself with this elegant beauty from Bruno Dellac’s Château du Tertre Belair. He planted vines here over 30 years ago, which he farms entirely organically (lowering yields and increasing flavor). His 2018 won gold in France’s prestigious Gilbert & Gaillard guide, where judges wrote:
“Expressive nose combining black fruits, plum, fine spices, and oak undertones. Youthful, ethereal palate showing medium fullness and supported by elegant tannins.”
With its ripe black currant, blackberry, and toasty oak notes, Château du Tertre Belair is a perfect match for hearty roasts or meaty stews. Order your share today and make this Bordeaux the star of your dinner table.
