Château Carignan, Cadillac Cotes de Bordeaux 2014

Red | France | Bordeaux | Full-bodied red

Château Carignan has an extraordinary history; it was given to one of Joan of Arc’s right hand men, Jean Poton de Xaintrailles, who, led by the Connetable Talbot, went on to trounce the English at Castillon la Bataille, thereby ending the Hundred Years’ War. Today’s custodian, Andy Lench, has left no stone unturned in his quest to raise Carignan’s quality ever higher.

The 2014 is juicy and plump, rich and spiced, drinking now but with the wherewithal to age too.

"This is one of the best value Château-bottled clarets available anywhere. Predominantly from the Merlot grape with smaller percentages of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, Château Carignan has been owned for the past decade by Andy Lench, who has raised the quality to its current high level. It has an exhilarating plummy core but with superb focus and a satisfying aftertaste reminiscent of a far more expensive claret. This would partner perfectly with white or red meats and not disgrace anyone’s Christmas dinner." Bruce Palling, The Week, December 2019
