Château Hourtin-Ducasse 2010, Bordeaux France MAGNUM
£53.75 (inc VAT)
A long and harsh winter mellowed into a sunny summer and almost perfect harvesting conditions (the climate was so favourable the winemakers used zero chemicals for the entire year) that led to this multiple - like, 15+ at this point - award winner. Absolutely worth going big on.
Hourtin-Ducasse is located in the heart of the Haut-Medoc. It’s relatively the baby of all of the Bordelais châteaux and was founded in the 18th-19th centuries by two men, Mr. Hourtin and Mr. Ducasse. The current family is the Marengo family, who aim is to protect the richness of the terroir, stand by their vines, then raise their wines to make each vintage express all its character.
