Offer | Château Ramafort, Cru Bourgeois Médoc 2010
Introductory Special Offer
"A corking Cru Bourgeois Médoc from a 10/10 vintage"
Jonathan Ray, The Spectator
This excellent Cru Bourgeois property was historically owned by Château Lafite and when they sold it, their winemaker, Eric Fabre, preferred to stay at Château Ramafort for 10 years afterwards. Château Ramafort’s vineyards are located close by to those of Château Lafite, and they only release the wines from their fairy-tale 17th century cellars, the largest in the Médoc (known locally as La Cathédrale), when they judge the wines are perfect for drinking.
The 2010 is perfect now and will be for the next 5 years.
How does the wine taste?
A blend of 50% cabernet sauvignon and 50% merlot. 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 palate is wonderful with a full body and weight to it, while incorporating gorgeous softened tannins having spent many years maturing 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.
