Chateau de Malleret Haut Medoc 2015
BORDEAUX!! It has been far too long, old, lusty, delicious friend! So good, so immensely satisfying --- we are finally satiated! Don’t miss! 92 POINTS (plus double 90s from Wine Spec and Vinous!), 2015 vintage (a blockbuster) and the best price to be seen on Earth, Westeros or anywhere else!
This wine made us actually pause all the madness on GOT last night to savor its punch, powerful silky texture, its pure, brilliant, lovely streak of cassis and smoky leather…oh baby, if a wine was EVER right for the occasion, this was IT! The Malleret estate has some 400 years of history in the Medoc, and as with so many of the Cru Bourgeois, it’s really in the last decade or so that quality has just exploded upwards --- this is sexy stuff at the old $36 price, but at $19??!
When your box arrives, TEAR INTO IT immediately. Pop that cork and savor with us. The flowing inky-colored fruit, the aromatic woodsmoke...oh, you are going to be STOKED! 2015 is such a round, gorgeous, drinkable vintage this wine will be great tonight or sometime in 2023 as well, so get a couple extra for the cellar...just landed in our warehouse, but looking at it coming off the forklifts, we think we should have ordered more..! While it lasts!
Established in the 16th century this picturesque 100+ acre estate, planted to 46% Merlot, 41% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot in the Haut Medoc is just an eye-popping value!

About The Producer
The people of the Bordeaux region have a genius for combining magnificent residences with high-quality vineyards. Malleret is an example of this. Situated in the commune of Pian-Médoc, the Château de Malleret terroir is one of the oldest in the region. Over three centuries of history, some of the great names in wine and trade have followed on from each other as head of the estate. The château remained in the hands of the Clossmann family, despite different names, until 2000, when it was sold to Maison de Luze, with whom it had enjoyed a long-standing partnership. In August 2006, Maison de Luze sold Malleret, but is still the sole distributor of its wine. Bruno Vonderheyden became the estate director and Florence Deguillaume the manager.
