Wine Style: Full Bodied Red
Enjoy With: Red Meats, Stews & Casseroles
Closure: Cork / Cork Type
Producer: Jean-Christophe Barbe
Jean-Christophe`s original 1.3 hectares of red grape varieties are located at Laville on a plot of land called Mahon, hence the name. Soils are predominantly clay and the average age of the vines 15 years old. The wine is a blend of 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, and it is startlingly good for a Bordeaux Rouge at this price. The work that goes into it - leaf plucking to expose the fruit, crop thinning at veraison to lower yields and aid ripeness, hand picking, three weeks on skins followed by 12 months in vat - merits a higher price.
Good colour, a classic nose and ripe, supple fruit on the palate with the sort of grip on the finish that reminds you that you are drinking a claret.
