Château Tour Puy Blanquet
Most of the wines on our site are really hard to find in the UK, this one is the exception because it is actually pretty hard to find anywhere in Europe. Probably in part due to the fact that they only make 2,500 cases but also due to the fact that it is great value.
This is a classic little family-owned St Emilion estate with no pretentions who are focused on making really good, well balanced wine. As usual it is merlot based but it has up to 85% of it in here (most winemakers stop at 70%), which makes it a more concentrated, smoother wine.
Perfect with red meat (works really well with spaghetti bolognaise) or duck but this wine works either as an everyday wine or for those informal Friday night dinners with friends.
Will last easily until the middle of the next decade.
