DRINK OF THE WEEK

Chateau Jouanin Castillion 2014

There's a lot of quite ropey Bordeaux out there - I have a feeling that it's a bit like the Emperor's New Clothes and no one dare call them out. (there is a bit of an unwritten wine writer's rule that we simply don't write about the poor wines).
Bit this Bordeaux is a cracker, you'll see it's got a bit of age to it and that shows in its lovely brick red colour and earthy nose. There's still a decent amount of spicy blackberry on the palate and some maturing tannins which give structure but don't dominate. At nine quid this is a lovely Sunday roast wine - Sante!
