CHAT ROUGE DE BARAT 17
Chateau de Barat is produced by the Lurton family, one of the top 10 négociant houses in Bordeaux in south west France; home to Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. The company was set up to distribute wines from all the appellations of the Bordeaux region made in a wide range of styles, quality and prices.
This means the Lurton have great access to good quality grapes from which they can produce exceptional value for money, such as in this accessibly priced, medium bodied red blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. It offers a good gateway to the savoury black fruit and smooth plummy richness of wines from Bordeaux, the world's biggest fine wine region.
