This pure Bordeaux Rouge is an inviting ruby colour in the glass. The expressive bouquet recalls red fruits and savoury spices. Once tasted, flavours of strawberries and redcurrants reveal themselves in the wine, together with tender tannins and a supple mouthfeel.

For six generations the Barreau family has resided in the commune of Grezillac. To this day they continue their tradition of winemaking and own both Château Haut-Garriga and Château Coitreau. The vineyards are located on the highest slopes overlooking St Emilion.
Chateau Haut Garriga is unusual in being 100% Semillon, the typical Bordeaux blanc being a blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon. Mary Dowey was so taken with this wine that she commented 'I don't think I have ever come across a white Bordeaux that offers better value'. Anyone looking for an alternative to Sauvignon Blanc, while not straying too far off the mark, will be well rewarded with this 'immediately likeable' wine from Entre Deux Mers.
"Warmer years such as 2015 allow the petit-château wines to shine a little brighter. This is 100% Merlot and drinking nicely now — aromas of plums and strawberries, supple and soft with more red fruits on the palate and a touch of structure for balance. Excellent value."
