Le Grand Chai, Château La Brande, Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux, France 2010
16pts/20 (86/100pts)
75% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, this is forward and accessible with plump blackcurrant and cherry fruit and savoury, pencil-lead tones. There’s a sweet attack on the palate, which is lively and spicy, delivering a mouthful of pure, brambly fruit.
