Château Breillan, Haut-Médoc, Bordeaux, France, 2016
Drinking Window: 2021 - 2026
Another wine from the Sichel family portfolio, Breillan is situated in Blanquefort on the outskirts of Bordeaux. Despite its Haut-Médoc appellation, Breillan comprises an atypical blend of 90% Merlot with 10% Cabernet Franc – in other words, a Right-Bank mix on the Left Bank! It’s a highly successful blend with a dark red/purple hue in the glass, plump fruit and firm tannins, which will benefit from a year or two more in bottle.
