The Pull The Cork 6 Bottle Christmas Mixed Case was put together specifically for those weekends away at the inlaws – anyone that says they don’t love a classic Bordeaux is simply not telling the truth! This 6 bottle mixed case supplies you with some generous wines that have a beautiful structure, silky tannins and great ageing potential. What you don’t drink you can always leave to rest in the rack for next time. This 6 bottle Christmas Mixed Case consists of 2 x Chateau Lamothe Bergeron 2009, 2 x Château Haut-Faugères Grand Cru St.Emilion 2014, and 2 x Château Mazèyres Pomerol 2015.
The Chateau Lamothe Bergeron 2009 is a Bordeaux wine from the Haut Médoc. Chateau Lamothe was inherited by Jacques de Bergeron in the 18thCentury. As a politician, he escaped the guillotine but was exiled to his country estate by the French Revolution in 1796 and became a noted expert on vines. The 200-year-old estate is just south of St Julien, situated on the ‘motte’ (or plot of high land) also referenced in the name. A perfectly well made Bordeaux wine and a Gold medal winner as well.
The Château Haut-Faugères Grand Cru St.Emilion 2014 is the second wine of Château Faugères and is a blend of 85 % Merlot, 10 % Cabernet Franc, 5 % Cabernet Sauvignon. As the second label of Château Faugères, a Saint Emilion Grand Cru Classé since 2012, the management of the vineyard and winemaking process are the same. The Haut-Faugères is a stunning wine which is characterised by its freshness and harmony. This generous wine has a beautiful structure, silky tannins and has great ageing potential.
The Château Mazèyres Pomerol 2015 is a Bordeaux blend, grown in clayey gravel and clayey sand on a sub-soil of iron-rich clay, known locally as “crasse de fer”. Fermentation took place in small, temperature controlled stainless steel, with a long period of vatting for soft extraction of velvety tannins. It was matured in 40% new oak barrels for 15 months. A long-standing Pomerol that has undergone a major renovation in the last twenty years with the expansion of the cultivated area and transition towards a certified biodynamic cultivation system. Château Mazèyres is ruby coloured, with a touch of vanilla first on the nose, then a savoury note of toasted hazelnuts that evolves into black cherry and raspberry fruit as it opens with air.
