Bordeaux St Emilion Château La Bastidette 2019: best price for this exceptional single-varietal Merlot from an historic vineyard near the prestigious Château Cheval Blanc: case of 12 bottles delivered


Finding a great St-Emilion Bordeaux wine at a big price is easy. Discovering a serious, solid hidden gem from the region at a sensible price is painstakingly rare—but well worth the effort—and our Club Wine Tasting Panel are excited to have tasted again the Château La Bastidette, made as a second wine on the great Château Chambrun estate, and a favourite with our Members in an earlier vintage.
This, the 2019 vintage, has just arrived, and it is excellent. It was awarded a prestigious star by the hugely influential Guide Hachette. It is a ripe, fleshy, right-bank Bordeaux: rich, smooth, dense and pure red with an excellent finish. It is made from a one hectare parcel of 40-year-old Merlot vines from one of the most beautiful terroirs of the Right Bank.
The wine shows off a black colour with garnet-red tints. The nose is expressive, with blackcurrant and cherry aroma, mixed with vanilla, mineral and cedar notes. Concentrated and round in the mouth, with sweet red berries, liquorice and cedary spice, it is well balanced with a touch of freshness, a long, chocolatey finish, with silky tannins. With vibrant fruit flavours, a harmonious balance, and impressive aging potential, this wine offers a tantalising taste of the Right Bank at an accessible price—particularly through CountryClubuk!
Drinking beautifully now, it will continue to benefit from cellaring until 2027, so it may well pay to order a case or two now, drink some and cellar the rest!
