Chateau Merigot Cotes de Bourg 2018

The Chateau Merigot Cotes de Bourg is brimming with vibrant red fruits and gentle oak spice nuances, this is a beautifully balanced wine with some intense black fruit flavours and a textured finish.

Producer Note - Château Mérigot is a splendid domain situated at the highest elevation of the Côtes de Bourg appellation looking over the Gironde estuary on the right bank of Bordeaux. Renowned winemaker Dominique Raimond acquired the property in 2008, having researched the best soils and terroirs. The vineyard comprises predominantly Merlot and Malbec and is cultivated according to sustainable philosophies. Dominique is experimenting with part vinification in wooden egg shaped fermenters, resulting in wines which are intensely flavoured while retaining suppleness and elegance.

Vintage - 2015 has been hailed as an excellent vintage in Bordeaux. Generous flowering took place followed by a hot, dry early summer. August was slightly cooler and damper, followed by good weather in September enabling the grapes to reach full maturity. The wines have power and precision, particularly from the right bank appellations and many outstanding wines have been made from lesser appellations.

Vineyard - The vineyard sits on a beautiful sun-drenched plateau in the appellation of Côtes de Bourg on the right bank of Bordeaux. Merlot and Malbec vines are planted at 5,000 plants per hectare in clay gravel soils. The vineyard is managed sustainably. Natural weeds are planted between the rows to absorb excess moisture and promote microbial life in the soil. Meticulous canopy management is undertaken to ensure aeration and maturation of the bunches.

Winemaking - Traditional Bordeaux vinification took place in temperature controlled stainless steel vats, with careful extraction to obtain velvety and fine tannins. Daily tastings took place to determine the amount of racking required. Part of the wine was aged in oak barrels for one year; the remainder was aged in vats with micro-oxygenation. The goal was to obtain a final blend dominated by the fruit and supported by measured oak nuances.

Tasting Note - Brimming with vibrant red fruits and gentle oak spice nuances, this is a beautifully balanced wine with a supple tannins and a smooth finish.

Serving Suggestion - Perfect with a flame-grilled steak, veal chop or osso bucco.

Can you explain your shipping charges?

We charge the amount the courier charges us to deliver the wines. In the majority of cases this is £10.00 for a dozen wines. For local delivery we charge £5.00 as we can often do this ourselves, by local we mean Milton Keynes.

Couriers charge by weight and size and a case of wines is both heavy and bulky and so the costs are fairly high. The charges are the same if you are buying 1 bottle or 6 bottles but they change if you go over 6 bottles due the the excess weight and size. Couriers also charge a fee to cover fuel excess and this all goes towards the total cost not to mention the 20% VAT to be added to everything.

Currently if someone orders a dozen wines they are charged £10.00 but if they order 24 bottles the charge is the same!

If you wish to have your wines shipped to other countries the costs are extreemly high and often not worth paying for. The cost for example to ship to the USA for a dozen wines would be £100.00 for the shipping alone! Therefore we have taken the decision not to ship any wines outside of the UK.

 

What is your minimum order?

The minimum order is 1 bottle! I prefer it if people order more and you get better value with the delivery if you do this too!

 

What if I want to send wine as a gift?

No problem, we will send to your preferred address and even include a card free of charge!

We have two kinds of cards a blank one and a Thank you one. However if you want a Valentines one or a birthday card or anyother type of card please let us know. We will write your personal greeting and even include the soppy stuff. We don't charge for the cards as its our way of thanking you for choosing us to send a gift to your loved one. 

 

What about a discount?

I may be able to take a little off the price if you ask nicely and there is a large enough order. Please do not ask for a discount on any orders under 12 bottles.  Email me with your requirements and I will let you know if I can do anything. However the best way to get a discount is to sign up for the newsletter as there is often special offers given away to newsletter subscribers.
