Chateau Le Puy is “surely one of Bordeaux’s most overlooked estates” according to Decanter’s Jane Anson
95/100 – Huon Hooke, The Real Review (2016 vintage)
Tasting Note: The fruit of a plot of vines known as ‘Les Rocs’, planted with 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, the Barthélemy undergoes a long vinification process with no added substances. The wines are matured in oak barrels for 24 months, with our technical interventions optimised with reference to the lunar calendar and with no added sulphur dioxide or other chemical products. They are then bottled without filtration. The robe is a deep, enticing purple, while the nose boasts a rich array of aromas which seem to evoke a basket of perfectly ripe grapes. The palate is luxurious and complex, balancing great depth of flavour with a silky lightness of touch. The finish is seductive with a hint of mystery, inviting you to plunge further into this entrancing enigma. Barthélémy is an ideal partner for all grilled meats, game, mushrooms and refined, delicate ingredients, complementing without overwhelming complex flavours. Above all, Barthélemy is an emotional experience.
