Château Ramafort, Cru Bourgeois, Médoc, Bordeaux 2010
Château Ramafort is an excellent Cru Bourgeois from the great 2010 vintage that is now fully mature and drinking beautifully. The Château was formerly owned by Château Lafite and only releases the wines from its fairy-tale 17th century cellars when they judge the wines are perfect for drinking.
"A corking Cru Bourgeois Médoc from a 10/10 vintage". - Jonathan Ray, The Spectator
The 2010 is perfect now and will be for the next 5 years.
How does the wine taste?
A blend of 50% merlot and 50% cabernet sauvignon. Dense deep red colour with a nose that is full of smooth, rich red berries and black fruit - cherry, blueberry and blackberries. The palate 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. There are very subtle chocolate and toasty toffee notes from the oak along with a gorgeous lengthy finish. A terrific high-quality claret at a great price.
