Château des Antonins Bordeaux Supérieur 2018

£12.50

Located southeast of Bordeaux, Château des Antonins is a family-run estate steeped in history. The estate, built in the 13th century, owes its name to the ‘Antonins’ monks who lived there for 500 years. Phylloxera destroyed the vineyards in the late 19th century but the de Roquefeuil family, who have owned the estate since the 1850s, have gradually replanted vines, which today cover 25 hectares. Geoffroy and Martine de Roquefeuil took over in 1985, and have moved to sustainable farming.

Deep ruby-red in colour, this wine has an inviting bouquet of red plum, black cherry and blackcurrant, with hints of spice. The palate is concentrated and supple, with smooth tannins and layers of bright red fruit.

Roast lamb with garlic and rosemary, ox cheek or steak frites would make a great match with this wine.  Vegetarians may like to try this with a whole, roasted celeriac.  Cheeses such as Cheddar, Comte and Mimolette will pair well.
