Details

Chateau Le Puy, Two Bottle Bordeaux Gift Set, Natural wine, iconic estate, elegant, delicious. 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. 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. The red is 85% Merlot, and the rest is mostly Cabernet Sauvignon with a smidge of old vine Carmenere. Marie Cecile is a rich, luscious Semillon.


Marie Cecile is outstanding white Bordeaux, gorgeous, tantalising, unique drinking, I can't find enough adjectives to describe how delicious this wine is. Totally Natural, 100% Semillon from this iconic estate. Le Puy Emilien is the most elegant and purest bottle of Claret in Bordeaux. The 2014 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!
