WINEMAKER NOTES

Château Mathiot is a tiny family owned estate, 30 km south of Bordeaux on the right bank of the Garonne. At just two hectares it’s a fraction of the size of most Crus Classés, yet in the pursuit of quality it acts like a heavyweight. So called petits châteaux like this one have to, in order to compete. The best follow the same quality enhancing procedures in the vineyard as the famous
name estates. And Benoît Dubourg is equally fastidious in the cellar. 2016 is a magnificent vintage, “the finest I have tasted in 32 years” says top Bordeaux critic Robert Parker. You only have to see this wine’s deep colour, smell its pronounced aromas and taste its delicious ripeness to realize why.

TASTING NOTES

Beautiful ruby red color with garnet reflections. Aromas of red berries, spices, and blackcurrants. On the palate, medium-bodied, with notes of small read fruits and a spicy touch. This wine is well-balanced, elegant, and easy to drink.

PAIRING SUGGESTIONS

Accompanies marvelously game, red meat, braised steaks, or roast beef.
