2015 Goubau, Cotes de Castillon

When people talk about good Bordeaux vintages, that isn't just reserved for the Lafites and Haut Brions of this world. The Petits Chateaux benefit from the favourable conditions, too, of course. Chateau Goubau is a gem of a property, owned by the Thienponts who are nothing short of Bordeaux Royalty. This is a great example of not having to spend a fortune to enjoy excellent claret.

Bordeaux really is the oh là là of French wine. A UNSECO world heritage site, this place is home to the world's most expensive wines, and for good reason! With over 6,000 wineries and 57 appellations it can be relatively complicated to get your head around. Napoleon was the man who categorized the best wineries in Bordeaux to make it easier to identify the crème de la crème. Incredibly, the classification of 1855 is still in force today. There are five different cru classification systems, that include 88 wineries from Grand Premier Cru to Premières Crus and beyond, with most of the classified regions situated in the great Médoc region. Merlot is the most planted grape, and no surprise that 89% of the all Bordeaux wine is red. However white wine has always been an integral part of the history of Bordeaux and was more widely produced than red wine until the mid 1950's. Primarily famous for sweeter styles like Sauternes, dry white wine is blooming due to increased production and consumer demand.
