We regularly fall for Ch Bourgneuf when tasting it En Primeur – this 2019 is outstanding for its beautiful, uplifting aroma, and intense power with energy on the palate. The property has been in the Vayron family since 1840, for 8 generations, the 2019 having been assembled from 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc, the wine now ageing in 35% new barrels. Rich purple-ruby colour, the nose combines red and black berry aromas, very enticing. Palate is full-bodied, with an intense, complex middle of vivacious fruitiness, and precise, fine structure. Tannins are silky and mouth-coating, the finish showing bounce and exceptional length. This will age magnificently (for drinking 2025-2040+).
