Mouthes Le Bihan, Les Apprentis, Côtes de Duras, France 2009

Rating: 18/20pts

This 27ha estate was formed in 1999 when Catherine and Jean-Mary Bihan purchased a patchwork of small vineyards which became available as their owners retired. Charming and rustic, and 60% Merlot, this has dried herb, plum and red cherry aromas. Super-pure, with breezy acidity, try it with a Sunday roast.
