Chateau Argadens Bordeaux Superieur 2019
Saint-Andre-du-Bois, Famille Sichel
This vintage offers a deep, bright colour. The nose, although young, is remarkably rich. It reveals great aromatic complexity with notes of fresh fruit, red and blackberries accompanied by toasted notes. On the palate, it is structured and elegant and beautifully balanced which gives it a great persistent finish. Château Argadens will age very well for several years and perfectly reflects the high quality and value great Bordeaux wines offer.
Merlot - 63%, Cabernet Sauvignon - 37% (2019 -14.5% abv)
The original name of this property, parts of which date back to the 12th and 16th centuries, was La Salle d'Argadens. It became Chateau Argadens in 2002, when it was bought by Maison Sichel. Sichel's aim in acquiring Argadens was quite simply to see it express the full potential of its wonderful terroir and become one of the benchmark properties in the Bordeaux Superieur category. To achieve this, the Sichel family has put in place a vast renovation program. After 12 months in oak barrels, Argadens red is thoroughly modern Bordeaux with lots of concentrated fruit and an attractive, supple balance. Not surprisingly, it gets consistently high marks in tastings and competitions.
