Château Bolaire Red Bordeaux Blend Bordeaux Supérieur 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

A stunning sleeper of the vintage this blend of 39% Petit Verdot 34% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon possesses an inky/blue/purple color in addition to sweet aromas of blueberries cherries and licorice medium to full-bodied flavors an excellent texture and sweet tannin. It's an intriguing effort that should age nicely for a decade. Robert Parker - Wine Advocate: 88 points 42% merlot 30% petit verdot and 28% cabernet sauvignon; just the second vintage for this Bordeaux Superieur) Vibrant aromas of violet licorice and leather. Sweet dense and rather muscular with good black fruit flavors. Finishes with substantial tannic backbone."

Château Bolaire, built in 1860, is located at the “end of the island" of Macau en Médoc. This land, nowadays connected to the peninsula “médulienne”, was in the past an island of the Garonne. Benefiting from conditions favourable with the vine growing (proximity of the river, natural drainage), this terroir has a distinctive wine history: 16th and the beginning of the 17th century represent the golden age of these vineyards. From this glorious period, the vineyard has evolved, but the tradition remains quite present: the grape variety Petit Verdot accounts for 39% of the planted grape varieties. Château Bolaire belongs to Vincent Mulliez today, also owner of Château Belle-Vue and Château de Gironville, in the Haut-Médoc appellation. Read less
