Wine of the Week…Chateau Calendreau

Chateau Calendreau Wine of The Week

This wine is produced in an Estate owned by the Galles family through four generations.  Situated in the village of Saint Andreu Du Bois 10km from Langon and 50km south of Bordeaux on sunny slopes, it overlooks the valley of the Garonne.

It is comprised of 60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc.  In the glass Chateau Calendreau displays a garnet-red hue with purple tints.

This is a deep, rich and flavoursome red wine with this vintage displaying a warming but subtly fresh nose of jammy prune.  The palate is ample and fresh, supple but rich in extract, floral, and with a long, sharp finish.

A food-friendly wine that pairs beautifully with venison and red meats and poultry and is also perfectly fine sipped on its own.

If you’re eating something different, we have a wide selection of wines available at a range of prices to suit all budgets.  Our off-sales team are always happy to advise you on the right choice to match a particular dish.
