Situated in Blanquefort on the outskirts of Bordeaux, Château Breillan, which dates back to the 14th centruy, was completely rebuilt in the early 20th century in the neo-Gothic style. Today, the vines are tended by a viticultural college and consequently has the advantage of major resources.
The very atypical mix of grape varieties, in which Merlot predominates, yields a very generous, well-structured wine wrapped in smooth, lingering extract.
Clad in a beautiful ruby red with deeppurple hints, this 2016 offers an intense, fresh bouquet with a hint of spice, red fruits and cherry. Mouthfilling, chewy tannins on the palate, which lingers to a balanced, superbly unctuous finish.
A stunning medium bodied wine that has excellent structure and style. Made predominantly from Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, the wine also has small proportions of Malbec and Carmenere in the blend. Aged in oak barrels for 18 months before bottling.
Full of juicy, red fruits this claret is soft and appealing with a lovely elegant balance that makes it very moreish!
‘This is without doubt, the finest, inexpensive red Bordeaux on the shelves at the moment. Made predominantly from Merlot, with class and impeccable balance, this is a modern, juicy, complete wine with genuine, heart-warming appeal.’ Matthew Jukes, Daily Mail, 28 May 2016
Clad in a beautiful hue of garnet, this wine has a rich, open bouquet that reveals intense aromas of ripe, concentrated black-berried fruit and elegant oak. The same impression of generous fruit is found on the powerful, rich and chewy palate, which is structured by taut, dense tannins and lingers to a long, ample and spicy finish.
