  • This premium Bordeaux Superieur is named so due to the very specific regulations winemakers must adhere to when making it. For example, it must be made within the Bordeaux region, and aged for at least a year. In this case, it has been aged since 2010. A Bordeaux Superieur must also be made from grapes left on the vine longer than normal – resulting in a remarkably complex yet coherent flavour profile with a complementary sweetness.

    So, if you fancy trying something a little out of the ordinary, give this 100% Merlot a sample. You never know, it may be your next favourite drop!

  • The ideal accompaniment for the Château Larteau 2010 is, frankly, good friends and a relaxed atmosphere. Since it is a little out of the ordinary, this wine provides a wonderful talking point and ample inspiration.

    However, another fond friend for this wine would be a hearty beef dish, such as a rich casserole or bourguignon, served with fluffy potatoes and spring greens. Perhaps surprisingly, a mushroom risotto, laced with the earthy flavours of the woodlands, works very well with the bottom notes of the Château Larteau, and is lifted later by its black and red fruit top notes.
