Château Ramafort Cru Bourgeois Médoc Bordeaux 2010
Château Ramafort is one of the Médoc’s top Cru Bourgeois and in 2010 made a classic claret worthy of that great vintage. Our stock comes straight from their cellars where it has been gently maturing for more than ten years undisturbed. It has now reached its peak (with at least another 5-7 years ahead of it). You will find no claret in the UK at under £20 a bottle to match it in terms of quality and taste.
The château, which previously belonged to Château Lafite, is on the highest plateau in the Médoc, just north of Saint-Estèphe. Its credentials are impeccable. We all love this claret and I am sure you will too. Please don’t leave it too long before ordering as this along with all good affordable clarets from the 2010 vintage are fast disappearing from the market.

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.
What do the critics say?
"A corking Cru Bourgeois Médoc from a 10/10 vintage".
