Chateau La Bernadotte (Pichon Lalande)

Classification

Cru Bourgeois
Chateau Bernadotte is owned by Pichon-lalande and has such illustrious neighbours as Lafite and Mouton Rothschild. The wine is a fantastic example of a well crafted Bordeaux and one that punches well above its weight in terms of quality compared to others of a similar price tag.

The wine is deep crimson in colour with flashes of purple, on the nose there are vibrant red and black berry aromas, notably blackcurrant with hints of eucalyptus, sage, licquorice and cedar. Rich blackcurrant, blackberry and cherry fruit flavours follow through on the smooth palate with further complexity added by hints of oak, mocha and tobacco leaf, supremely well balanced by mellow tannins and a fine minerality. A delicious wine that consistently over delivers, buy some while you can, it can only improve with further cellaring.
