Chateau Le Puy 500ml Biodynamic Claret, no added sulphur, stunning purity, Claret as it should be. The 2015 has a beautiful deep red colour, with hints of ruby. The palate is still very fresh and youthful but the vintage was a good one at Le Puy and the wine will age well. The nose is complex and deep and leads to toasted cocoa notes and ripe red fruits. The palate is fresh with elegant tannins and a long smooth finish. A very accessible vintage of Le Puy, even for Cabernet Sauvignon devotees, it is a wine that cannot fail to deliver enjoyment! The 500ml bottle is perfect for one but not enough for two!

Owned by the Amoreau family since 1610, Château Le Puy overlooks the Dordogne valley on the same geological plateau as Saint-Emilion and Pommerol, once called the ‘Plateau of Wonders’. The Château was originally built at the beginning of the 17th century and later extended in 1832 by Barthélémy Amoreau. There are 35 hectares of vines spread over three plots with soils made of clay, limestone and silica. It's quite common to find some sharpened flints between the vines as some parts used to be battlefields in medieval times. There vines are 85% of Merlot, 14% Cabernet Sauvignon and 1% of very old vines of Carménère. There is also a small patch of old vines of Semillon from where they make their delicious un-sulphured white Marie Cecile. The current crop of family wine makers, Jean-Pierre, Françoise and Pascal are the 15th generation and winemaking methods have barely changed in all that time meaning that Chateau Le Puy Claret has a taste reminiscent of the 1940's and 1950's (so i am told) truly reflecting the terroir, the moderate climate and the finesse of the grapes varieties. They work using biodynamic principles, no chemicals, low yields, no yeasting nor chaptalization, long ageing and very low added sulphites if any. These are rare bottles in Bordeaux, not trying to impress wine critics or grab headlines, not trying to fetch mind boggling prices on the international markets (although the older they get, the pricier they become) and not trying to express anything other than what they can produce in their vineyard. They are bottles of Bordeaux that made me like Bordeaux again and although we have rarely had the opportunity to taste the very old vintages, we know these wines age majestically.

A wine maker according to Jean Pierre Amoreau....‘Being a wine grower is being an artist with method, audacious with reflection, enthusiast with meditation, ardent with patience, stubborn with imagination, thrifty with generosity.’ COOL!

  1. How good is this wine?

    This is a spectacular wine. There is an amazing nose of farmyard and earthy tones, and in the mouth you get the ripe fruit you might expect from a 2015, but also abundant complexity and tertiary notes of liquorice, and both floral and herbal hints. Incredibly mature for a five-year-old wine.
