“Bordeaux lovers will certainly want to have some 2015s in their cellars.” – Jancis Robinson, Master of Wine
The world’s leading wine critics all agree that Bordeaux’s 2015 vintage is one for the history books. And while big names like Château Mouton Rothschild fetch $700 or more per bottle, our man Jean-Marc Sauboua brings you boutique gold-medal-winners, like this find from Château Lacaussade Saint-Martin, for a fraction of that price.
It’s crafted at a renowned 19th-century château that lies on Bordeaux’s Right Bank, facing the storied Médoc and its Grand Cru estates. The cuvée name ‘Trois Moulins’ means ‘three mills’ and is inspired by the historic local windmills that once helped in wheat production. Sporting gold from the Concours des Vins Lyon, it’s a classic blend of Merlot (90%) and Cabernet (10%) that brims with rich dark fruit and spice.
Great vintage, great acclaim, great price ... you know what you need to do.
