Bordeaux’s Médoc region is home to storied appellations like Pauillac and Margaux, which house big-name châteaux and very pricey wines. But head just outside of these areas, and you’ll find small, family-owned estates producing delicious Bordeaux at far friendlier prices. Enter Château les Trois Manoirs.
Located in the heart of the Médoc, Château les Trois Manoirs is a Cru Bourgeois estate owned by the acclaimed Cruchon family (who run Château Chantemerle, another Cru Bourgeois). For this sophisticated cuvée, the Cruchons selected premium parcels from their estate vineyards – which include vines up to 50 years old – grown during the stellar 2015 vintage, which top critic Jeb Dunnuck writes “produced a bevy of ripe, sexy, opulent wines." In the cellar, light oak aging softens the Cabernet-dominant blend and adds subtle spice notes.
The quality shows in the glass – and in the awards cabinet. Over the years, this gem has scooped coveted gold medals and a slew of other impressive accolades – given the phenomenal quality of the 2015 vintage and the expert winemaking by the Cruchons, we’re expecting equally amazing acclaim for this new release.
