Château Ramafort, Cru Bourgeois, Médoc, Bordeaux 2010
Château Ramafort 2010, from one of the greatest vintages of modern times, was our claret find of 2019 and we believe a great bargain. This Cru Bourgeois, for long owned by Château Lafite who invested hugely in the 1980s, has been owned by the Charloux family since 1990.
The Château only release its wines from fairy tale 17th century cellars, the largest in the Médoc, known locally as La Cathédrale, when they judge the wines are perfect for drinking.
Made with a blend of 50% cabernet sauvignon and 50% merlot, this Claret was rated 90 points by Decanter; Robust blackberry nose. Rich,full-bodied, weighty concentrated and has a light chocolaty tone from the oak.
How does the wine taste?
A blend of 50% merlot and 50% cabernet sauvignon. Dense deep red colour in the glass. The nose is full of smooth and rich red berries and black fruit - cherry, blueberry and blackberries. The palette is wonderful with a full-body and weight to it, while incorporating gorgeous softened tannins after time in bottle. The style is clean with structure and a classic Médoc feel to it. There are very subtle chocolate and toasty toffee notes from the oak along with a gorgeous lengthy finish. Perfect now or hold over the next 5 years
