Chateau Grand Village 2010
One of our go-to wines in recent years, in terms of value, has been Chateau Grand Village. This sumptuous Cab Franc/Merlot blend from Bordeaux’s tiny commune of Mouillac is made by the team from none other than Chateau Lafleur. Indeed the vineyard management and vinification techniques are a mirror of the practices, honed at Lafleur over the past twenty years, that have helped to cement Lafleur’s status as one of the world’s most lauded and coveted wines.
Relatively unknown until the Guinaudeau family (in charge of Lafleur since 1985) took over in 2000, in the last couple of en primeur campaigns, Grand Village has been one of our biggest selling wines.
We have managed to pick up a parcel of their stunning 2010 vintage. One of the all-time great Bordeaux vintages; characterized by wines of immense poise, polish and structure, Grand Village 2010 is no exception. At just 190 pounds per case it is one of the best bargains you will see all year.
