The export manager of this impressive estate nabbed me at a wine show when I had no real interest in adding a new Bordeaux supplier. But I was impressed and I didn’t forget. So when ‘our’ Château Coursou was sold to a Chinese buyer unwilling to export to the UK, the lovely wines of owner and oenologue Philippe Carretero were a shoo-in to our range.
Vineyard size 45 hectares. Organic since 2012.

Bordeaux Rouge AC Château Rioublanc
A highly approachable claret, full of cassis and earthy plums, and a bottle which shows the word’s most famous wine-producing region can still produce wines of terrific value. Among the fruit notes there’s a nice cedar wood aspect as well as some classic ‘pencil shaving’ aromatics. You can add some bitter chocolate, black pepper and a hint of vanilla too…
