Chateau Bourdieu No 1 2019
Far from being a micro-vintage, N°1 denotes elegance according to Luc Schweitzer: soils on sunny hillsides and an abundance of a delicate woody aroma. A balanced wine but nevertheless startling, true to its roots and at the image of the winegrower.
The 2019 No. 1 is a soft, plush wine with no hard edges and plenty of appeal. Inky dark cherry, plum, crème de cassis, mocha, chocolate, sweet French oak and espresso all run through this sumptuous, racy Côtes de Blaye. The is a dramatic, exotic and virile, with tons of personality.
