2020 besides being a great vintage is also being heralded as a merlot year. Château Meaume's 'Réserve du Château' is a shining example of old-vine merlot at its very best. I tasted a fresh sample yesterday sent from the Château and the wine exceeded my expectations by some way. This is an affordable Bordeaux that sets a very high bar and reinforces the late Michael Broadbent's advice that you should always buy the lesser wines in a great vintage year.
The grapes for the Réserve come from the Château's oldest plots of merlot with an average age of 50 years + which, with their low yields, produce a wonderfully rich and concentrated wine that will be delicious drinking after 2-3 years, and will last for a good 10-15 years. At under £7 a bottle, this is one of the best value affordable 2020s on the market. For all of you who have bought their Réserve du Château in previous years, this is an exceptional vintage fill your boots (or rather your cellar!).

How does the wine taste?
A vibrant, dark ruby wine with aromas of ripe red berry fruits. It is rich and intense with layer upon layer of old-vine merlot flavours with a hint of spices and tobacco, and a lingering finish. A lovely wine that can both be drunk young and will age well.
