  • This is a very typical Bordeaux, with complex, very balanced black fruits and tannins.
  • Superb value for money - drinks like the first wine of a classified growth, though is a fraction of the price.
  • A wine to drink now or cellar for up to 10 years.
  • As with most top Bordeaux wines, it is excellent with roasts, steak and hard cheeses.

Brief Description

Tasting Notes

A powerful yet elegant red with ripe berried fruits enhanced by a subtle note of oak spice. Full bodied, with juicy fruit and an attractive savoury note on the finish.

About

The stunning 18th century Château Puy Guilhem is located on the hills of Saillans, overlooking the appellations of Pomerol and Saint-Émilion. The vineyard covers 14.5 hectares and is situated at the highest elevation of the Fronsac appellation, where the quality soils produce rich, concentrated grapes.

Fronsac itself is situated on the right bank close to Saint Emilion and the main variety is Merlot. With iconic names such as Petrus and Le Pin just a short distance away, it's little wonder that this wine is so good.

Ideal with...

This is the perfect wine for a Sunday roast or a pan-fried steak. It also works with hard cheeses, mushroom based dishes and strong winter vegetables with a sprinkle of sea salt.
