Intense juicy aromas reminiscent of root beer, raspberry and rhubarb topped with lightly browned crumble and a mocha on the side. Taste-wise, the soft red fruits marry with cola, fig, damson and hickory coffee. The round silky tannins cut through the wild strawberry and fig, resulting in a long satisfying finish.
Our 2011 “Le Bijou” (French for the Jewel) marries ripe Napa fruit in this elegant blend. Loaded with opulent cherry, blackberry, and blueberry fruit flavor, this wine is both approachable on release, yet built to age.
Gorgeously rich concentrated fruit at its peak – it has aged beautifully in bottle with the fruit and oak in perfect harmony. This is what well aged Claret should taste like. A rare treat at this price.
The chateau owes its name to the 18th-century Joseph Laffitte who created the estate. The wine ,which comes from the heart of Saint-Estèphe, is ripe with spice. With generous tannins and equally generous fruit, it is dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon that gives it the structure as well as the juicy fruitiness.
Colour: Dark garnet. Nose: Pleasant red berry aromas, with a hint of fresh walnut and toasted vanilla. Mouth: Fresh, well-rounded and fruit-driven, with an elegant, soft tannic structure. Good length.
