The three (great) Bordeaux wines on Saturday evening

The three (great) Bordeaux wines on Saturday evening


Here are three pretty Bordeaux bottles, classicism at its best for a good Saturday night. All you have to do is take out the noble meats to grill and enjoy!  

Drink less. Drink better

Château Montlabert 2019 Saint-Emilion Grand Cru

$72.25 – SAQ code 14742144 – 14%

If you want to impress the gallery on Father's Day on June 18, here's your chance! With its dominant Merlot (77%) supplemented by Cabernet Franc, it displays an ambitious ageing: notes of cigar box, toasted oak, ripe blackcurrant, plum with, in the background, notes of blood meat. Rich, ample, velvety while rising robust tannins, the wine leaves a tasty finish where notes of cedar and cocoa intertwine. Expensive, but enticing.

★★★ 1⁄2 $$$$$

Spirit of Gloria 2018, Saint-Julien

$48.50 – SAQ code 15136277 – 13.5% 

A lot of pleasure with this second wine from Château Gloria. A classic Left Bank blend with Cabernet Sauvignon dominating (57%) then Merlot and Petit Verdot completing it. Seductive with its fruity notes of blackcurrant, espresso and vanilla. A gourmet Saint-Julien that displays a certain elegance and good delicacy of tannins typical of the appellation. Good now and very drinkable, it can soften over the next 3 or 4 years.

★★★ 1⁄2 $$$$

Château Haut-Breton Larigaudière 2016, Margaux

$42.25 – SAQ code 732065 – 13.5% 

Without saying that it is the best of the three, it is by far the one that offers the best quality/price/pleasure ratio. A cru bourgeois that draws the best from this great vintage that is 2016 while perfectly capturing the elegance of the Margaux style. A bouquet that already evokes a secondary register of leather, humus and Paris mushroom with a background of ripe fruitiness and a very nice woodiness. On the palate, the material is satiny, full-bodied with a still tight tannic structure (85% Cabernet-Sauvignon), lots of freshness and good length. Superb right now knowing that it can continue to evolve favorably over the next ten years.
