A selection from Sherry-Lehmann’s Unsung Heroes of Bordeaux Collection – bottlings from lesser known chateaux that offer loads of quality at value-driven prices. They are easy-drinking in their youth, offer Bordeaux’s signature complexity and will pair well with a wide variety of cuisines. The 2016 vintage is considered to be an excellent vintage in Bordeaux. The wines are generously-fruited and structured with good levels of tannins. They also have freshness and energy and are extremely pleasant. Highly Recommended.

Solid young wine with a beautiful center palate of dark fruit and spices. Medium-to full-bodied, long and flavorful on the finish. New wine for me.

The medium ruby-hued 2016 Château La Chandelliere is a terrific Médoc offering a modern slant in its cassis and mulled fruits, subtle background oak, medium body, and fresh, elegant texture. Give it a year or two and enjoy over the following decade with a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon and 35% Merlot and aged in 33% new oak for 12 months.

The 2016 Chandelliere is a plump, absolutely delicious Cru Bourgeois to drink now and over the next few years. Plum, tobacco, cedar and menthol add character to this pleasing, everyday Bordeaux.
