One of the best values in Bordeaux, Chateau du Bernat is an amazing wine, made by the rising star of the Right Bank Thomas Duclos, the man behind Saint-Emilion's famed Cheval Blanc and Ausone! A hidden gem in our portfolio, the 2018 is made up of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, from a 65 hectare estate located south of Saint Emilion. Rich, deep and beautifully layered in the glass, the Chateau du Bernat is incredibly appealing. The product of a ripe year on the Right Bank, the 2018 offers plenty of blue fruit, cassis notes with a distinct dusty minerality. It's ready-to-drink, with no need to age and widespread appeal. We can't think of another $15 Bordeaux with this amazing pedigree!
"Elegant and inviting with hints of spiced plum, black cherry and red flower, then to a palate of bramble, liquorice and fine, glossy tannins. Gold Medal. Top Value." Decanter Magazine, 95 Points
