Intro: Ulysse Cazabonne is a Bordeaux merchant based in Margaux, with close links to many top Châteaux. It is owned by Chanel, which also owns Château Rauzan Ségla and Château Canon. Director John Kolasa was previously régisseur of Château Latour. Using these connections Ulysse Cazabonne has been able to source wines from famous estates that have not made the cut into the 'grand vin' for whatever reason - young vines or parcels that in these years have not been quite as successful, but which nevertheless benefit from the considerable expertise available in these top properties. We were frankly surprised (and delighted) by just how true the back-label claim proved to be for all these characterful clarets:"Vinified by a famous estate of the region, this wine is showing the typicity of its terroir".

Tasting Notes: Medium rich red core with a moderate watery rim and med+ viscosity. Stewed black and red fruit on nose accompanied with a leathery note. The wine is dry, with an excellent length and a finish. In the mouth there is more red fruit coming through which was not as evident on the nose. However this is a tannic wine with medium+ acidity.
