Red Bordeaux is prized by wine lovers the world over. And thanks to some amazing recent vintages, there’s never been a better time to enjoy a bottle … especially this one.
For 38 years, Christian Moueix was in charge of Château Pétrus – perhaps the most sought-after Bordeaux of all. At $3,000-plus a bottle, it’s certainly the priciest. Thanks to our long friendship with the Moueix family, you’re invited to enjoy his Private Reserve Bordeaux from the blockbuster 2015 vintage.
Among the many (many) critics singing this vintage’s praises is Decanter magazine, who writes that “Bordeaux is back with a sure-bet vintage that ticks all the boxes.” And Master of Wine Jancis Robinson notes that “Bordeaux lovers will certainly want to have some 2015s in their cellars.” We can’t think of a better find from this already historic year to stock up on …
Christian’s Private Reserve has aromas of ripe plum, black currant, licorice and hints of clove. On the palate, it's smooth and well-balanced, with dark berry fruits and a classic, minerally character. Like all top-notch Bordeaux, it will really shine when decanted 30-60 minutes before serving. Enjoy it over the next few years with roasted leg of lamb, beef tenderloin, or your favorite firm cheeses.
There is already such high demand for Bordeaux’s 2015s we recommend early orders in order to avoid missing out.
