    This is a very special, rare wine from a 3 hectare vineyard planted in 1939 in the Margaux commune of Macau. It's rare to find a Bordeaux-Supérieur in the Médoc, the more so when it has such a high percentage of Petit Verdot. Vigneron Patrice de Bortoli is the PV specialist in the whole of Bordeaux - the grape gives distinct freshly milled black pepper and spicy notes to the wine. Oak aged for 14 months in recent barrels, this has a very supple, unforced texture, only displayed by wines with real breed. Best carafed at the last moment. For drinking now to 2023.

    Patrice, whose estate qualifies as one of 46 Crus Artisans, has a tiny plot of 0.30h on a superb terroir of reddish colured gravel opposite Ch Cantemerle in Macau. Here the vines are approaching 20yo and give a superb wine, aged in a mix of new, one and two year old barrels, with a class, reserve, suppleness and elegance of dark cedar flecked fruit that make the finest Haut Médoc such a bargain. For drinking now to 2022.

    Moutte Blanc’s top wine comes from 0.70 hectares of gnarled 80yo PV, 300 metres from the estuary planted in ‘Palus’, a pebbly, clay soil. Although PV is very capricious and demands more than twice as much work in the vineyards as merlot, the spectacular wine that results is worth the effort. Given a low temperature extraction (necessary for PV) it was aged in 60% new oak with the balance from one and 2yo barrels. It was racked by an ancient practice ‘a l’esquive’, barrel by barrel, to avoid pumping and filtration, and fined by egg white in each barrel (half an hour’s work per barrel!) again to avoid pumping. It offers a fabulous bright dark plum colour, dark fruits and pepper on the nose, is very complete wine with depth and complexity, a fine tannic structure and is fresh and persistent on the finish. For drinking now to 2029.
