Bordeaux Supérieur Rouge AC, Château Rioublanc

£10.99

Deep garnet in colour. The nose is intense, with blackcurrant and blackberry notes and hints of violet, vanilla and pepper. On the palate it’s round and fresh with elegant tannins and a long finish. Superb balance : very accessible while expressing great complexity. Whilst ready to drink now, it will reach its peak within 2 years, and its structure allows for a further 3-6 years cellaring. Ideal with red meats, casseroles, roasted dishes and cheese, or to drink on its own.

Château Rioublanc

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.
