6 btl case - 2017 Ch de Lamarque, Haut Medoc, Bordeaux, France
Chateau de Lamarque is one of the Haut Medoc's most consistent performers, and in 2017 they produced a wine that outshone many grander names.
It wasn't an easy vintage given the heavy frosts early in the season, but conscientious producers were rewarded with excellent wines to drink over the medium term.
The 2017 from Chateau Lamarque has a vibrant core of cassis and cherry, a good backbone of firm yet forgiving tannins, and on the finish there are notes of cocoa and tobacco. This is a true claret for drinking over the next 4 years.
