The Nimbus Russus is an intense ruby – red colour with purple highlights. On the nose, the fruit expression is impressive with berries, dogwoods, plums and liquorice combined with notes of eucalyptus, black olives and intense black pepper. On the palate, there is an impressive spicy taste of black and green pepper, cinnamon and nutmeg which are complemented by earthy notes of fresh soil, and hints of dark chocolate. Velvety rounded tannins due to the 12 months ageing in old oak barrels. Potential age up to 10 years. Bottled with a natural cork closure, in order to ensure a unique ageing capacity.
A vibrant red wine with aromas of dark cherry, rich red forest fruits and floral notes of lavender and violet. The palate has hints of white truffle, hazelnut, and warm spices with glimpses of anise and clove, rounded off with herbaceous undertones. The finish is gripping, velvety and lingering.
Dark in colour, with a powerful nose of ripe black fruits and violet notes. An elegant and complex palate. A dense bouquet with a beautiful tannic base, fruity and fresh on the finish, well balanced.
Grapes: 70% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc
Wine has been in the blood of the Petit family since the eighteenth century but they did not buy this particular Château until 1998. Situated in the commune of Néac, what makes this property so special is the south-west facing, clay/gravel slope on which it sits, just across the Barbanne valley from its near neighbour Pétrus. These conditions are perfect for the ripening of Merlot and Cabernet Franc
Deeply coloured, delicious, full of dark ripe berry fruit characters. From the heart of the beautiful village of Cérons.

A great example from the lesser known Cotes de Bourg Bordeaux Region.Rich, purple colour with a brooding, peppery nose. Lush cassis fruit on the palate, with spicy, aromatic and floral edges. Chocolate oak nicely melts into the background.Country: FranceRegion: Cotes de BourgABV:13.5%Grapes: Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, MerlotCotes de Bourg is an appellation of the Bordeaux region, producing primarily red wine, but also a small quantity of white. The Merlot grape dominates the vineyards here – it thrives in the areas with cooler, moist, clayrich soils, while Malbec does better in the gravel and sanddominant parts of the Cotes de Bourg. The wines are of a younger drinking style, but will also age reasonably well for five to ten years.

Pronounced aromas of violet, bramble, dried fruit and a hint of lightly spicy oak. The palate is richly-flavoured with plum, wild cherry fruit, balsamic notes and firm but ripe tannins - leading on to a long, dry and savoury finish.
Super duper easy drinking, classic Bordeaux from a family owned estate in the heart of the Médoc near the village of St-Estephe.
