Entre Deux Mers estate admirably revitalised by the Sichel family. Even lesser châteaux made lovely wines in 2015.
Their extensive list currently includes this gem from the Entre-deux-Mers in Bordeaux: Chateau Argadens 2015 robust, elegant, balanced merlot dominated blend which is simply excellent value for the price and great buy for a Christmas standby.
In St-André du Bois south east of Bordeaux overlooking the Garonne, owned by the Sichel family since 2002. 63% Merlot, 32% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc. Bright deep crimson. Quite intense nose and impressive ripeness. Round with lots of fruit and pleasure but with the dry (not drying) finish that is typical of Bordeaux. Evidence of some good quality old oak on sweet fruit. Proper wine with some future. GV.
