The Bordeaux blend has been copied with considerable success in many other wine regions, the ultimate compliment. The Left Bank of the Gironde River boasts the great Chateaux of the Medoc and Graves, whilst on the Right Bank, Saint Emilion (arguably the most beautiful commune) and Pomerol. Bordeaux is synonymous with the finest quality, predominantly in red wines though great dry whites are made in the Pessac Leognan, and most wine lovers will strive to taste the sweet white wines of Chateau Yquem and its neighbouring Chateau in Sauternes and Barsac.
In a gorgeous Imperial format, we anticipate that this wine will have matured gently and slowly towards voluptuous perfection...
Completely mature and ready to drink immediately. Merlot grapes ripened better than Cabernet Sauvignon in this vintage, an advantage seen in the Merlot dominated 1988 from Chateau Canon.
