Back up the truck and buy the 2015 Chateau Haut-Gastineau by the case(s)!

That's right...so good, you should buy a case to enjoy now and a case to draw from over the next few years.

The 2015 vintage in Bordeaux - and much of Europe for that matter - has produced outstanding wines and, in the wine community, is being called "The Vintage Of The Century."

Like 2005 and 2010, 2015 is a classic. Silky, smooth, structured and oh so elegant. It is a Bordeaux vintage that will be talked about for decades along with the 2015 Haut Gastineau, which has produced another knockout Bordeaux value.

Clay and limestone soil gives Haut-Gastineau its mineral driven backbone. Plum and beautifully integrated dark cherry fruit offer amazing aromatics. Currants and blackberries are harmoniously layered. And, something you don't find in wines at this price, lasting acidity and smooth silky tannins.

From meats to cheese, this is shockingly good.

Our final thoughts: buy this by the case(s)! Expect pretty cherry notes now, with silky plum notes down the road.

Enjoy!

Summary


THE MERCHANT'S MARK

92+ / 100

Back up the truck and buy the 2015 Chateau Haut-Gastineau by the case!  The 2015 reminds us of the 2010 vintage, which was also a stunning value. Clay and limestone soils gives Haut-Gastineau its mineral driven backbone. Plum and beautifully integrated dark berry fruit offer amazing aromatics. Currants and blackberries are harmoniously layered. And something you don't find in wines at this price, lasting acidity and smooth silky tannins. This is an excellent example of quality and value from Bordeaux. From meats to cheese, this is a shockingly good value.
