2008 Ulysse Cazabonne

Colour Red
Origin France, Bordeaux
District Left Bank
Sub-district Haut Médoc
Village Saint Estèphe
ABV 13%

This 2008 is drinking perfectly now, good classic lines - this is proper claret but with the tell-tale purity of fruit, impressive edge and the intensity you expect from Saint Estephe - it is unmistakably from 'there' and has a great sense of place. Very fine tannins, supple yet firm, and tightly concentrated. A super example and an education of what can be achieved here and how it can differ from other villages and communes nearby. This shows great contrast to the other Expression Wines that we are so excited to have from Margaux, Pauillac, Saint Julien and the Médoc. L&S (Sep 2015)

Ulysse Cazabonne

Ulysse Cazabonne is a Bordeaux merchant based in Margaux, with close links to many top Châteaux. It is owned by Chanel, which also owns Château Rauzan Ségla and Château Canon. Director John Kolasa was previously régisseur of Château Latour. Using these connections Ulysse Cazabonne has been able to source wines from famous estates that have not made the cut into the 'grand vin' for whatever reason - young vines or parcels that in these years have not been quite as successful, but which nevertheless benefit from the considerable expertise available in these top properties. We were frankly surprised (and delighted) by just how true the back-label claim proved to be for all these characterful clarets:"Vinified by a famous estate of the region, this wine is showing the typicity of its terroir".
