2016 Château Barreyre, Bordeaux

I taste up to 40,000 wines a year and I can tell you that it is very rare to find a red Bordeaux of this calibre for a tenner. Made from 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, the silky fruit here is both beguiling and rewarding. There is stunning freshness on the finish, which is a hallmark of the superb 2016 vintage, and it is already drinking perfectly. Do not miss out on this genius wine.
