Garnet black color. Aromas and flavors of dark raspberries, black tea, and dried plum with a lightly tannic, lively, dry medium-to-full body and a sleek, medium-length finish with moderate oak flavor. A bold and chewy quaffer for the weeknight table.
Everyone who has tasted it has absolutely loved Chateau de Ribebon 2015 - often coming back for several more cases. It's the kind of wine you can't help falling in love with - seriously fine quality, from a top winemaking team and a great vintage at a very pleasing price. Plus it has received outstanding scores from a number of highly regarded wine publications and one of the world's most famous critics‚?¶ and it's under ¬£15 a bottle!
A Saint-Emilion in all but name, part of Ribebon's success can be attributed to the fact that the Cabernet Franc comes from 100 year-old vines, and the Cabernet Sauvignon & Merlot from vines with an average age of 60 years plus. These bring real depth along with plenty of ripe, supple fruit, with mineral undertones from the limestone sub-soil supplying freshness. Matured in a mix of new and used barriques for eighteen months, this wine is all about elegance and balance and punches way above its weight for a seemingly humble Bordeaux Superieur.
The Aubert family has lived in Saint-√?milion since 1750 and has a long history making Bordeaux's finest wines. They own several Grand Cru and classed growth estates, but their estate centers around the old family home of Ch√Ęteau de Ribebon, a magnificent 18th century building that was once a hunting lodge for King Louis XIV, beautifully preserved, on a terrace overlooking the Dordogne River. This has sold out rapidly every time we have shipped it.
