2015 Ch Le Lion d'Or, Blaye, Cotes de Bordeaux

Tasting Notes

We are great fans of juicy, well structured claret that over-delivers on flavour yet is modest in price. Ch le Lion d'Or does just that. Quite simply a delicious, well crafted Bordeaux that at 12.5% you can enjoy everyday without guilt. Good value at £12. Even better value at £9.99! 

"Beautifully light of touch with soft red fruit balanced by seamlessly integrated savoury tannins. Refreshingly just 12.5% - a charming wine"  

Vineyard Information

Blaye, Cotes de Bordeaux on the right bank of the Gironde is a marvellous place to secure such a bargain, and is much overlooked. Chateau le Lion d'Or is 100% Merlot from older vines in the commune of Marcillac, producing a lovely smooth claret with the warmth of the great 2015 vintage, yet balanced with integrated tannins that provide a fresh savoury note to the finish
