A professor of Oenology at Bordeaux university, winemaker Jean-Christophe Barbe produces stunning reds on his family estate in bordeaux. Although famous for his delectable Sauternes, a small section of the vineyard is exclusively red varieties prompting the name Château Mahon-Laville. The Merlot and Cabernet grapes are left to develop and intensely ripen before being hand picked in small batches.
A classic Bordeaux red nose with complex, smooth and graceful fruit on the palate. Delicious and the perfect red. Pairs well with aged meats and can be enjoyed on its own.
