Harriet’s first fabulous BinTwo favourite and what better choice for the festive season…
Been fighting the crowds with arms full of bags, wrestling with tinsel and getting tangled up in Sellotape? You deserve a treat!
How about an elegant, refined Bordeaux from a well-regarded Chateau? It is Christmas after all!
Chateau Deyrem Valentin Margaux 2010
Located just north of Margaux on the left-bank of Bordeaux, Chateau Deyrem is a small, family owned estate. Owned by the family since the 1920’s, Jean Sorge along with his daughters are dedicated to preserving the traditional ways of farming the land and making the wine the way their ancestors taught them.
This medium-full bodied Merlot/Cabernet Sauvignon blend is vinified in traditional cement vats before being aged for up to 15 months in 30% new French oak barrels. The result is a soft, smooth wine with a fine balance of acidity and tannins, giving great aging potential.
Fruity and rich with blackcurrant, ripe black cherry and earthy notes, this wine would be just perfect with a roast rib of beef or hard cheeses.
A wine that would certainly give many other prestigious wines from the region a run for their money at £30.50 a bottle or £27.45 to wine club members.
