Chateau Argadens 2017 Bordeaux Superieur
A lovely winery, now under the ownership and management of the famous Sichel family (also part owners of Chateau Palmer and a string of other Bordeaux vineyards). Sichel’s plan was to push the boundaries of this winery, from a low-key to a high-performing claret. Well, they’ve arguably achieved this, with Jancis Robinson claiming Ch Argadens as her ‘wine of the week’ in November 2018.
Aged for about one year in oak before bottling and release onto market, this is classic blackcurrant ripeness with a touch of spice and cigar smoke and medium tannic weight. A really smooth glass of wine.
