The benevolence of the vintage simply can’t be denied here, as it takes everything we like about this wine and turns it up a few notches.
We are delighted in the supple, immediate joys of the straight ‘Château Falfas’ cuvée, which comes from the virtually perfect 2016 vintage. Its linear, velvety red-fruit profile reminds us of wines from another like-minded right-bank estate, Château Le Puy. It is a remarkable value.
Les Saisons de Bourgneuf is more than just a great value: it's proof both that the region's reputation is built on solid ground and that the locals are not resting on their laurels.
