Bordeaux's Biggest Bargain - The "gorgeous" 2014 Château Bernadotte

Château Bernadotte, a well-known Haut-Médoc property situated just over the border from Pauillac, continues to make excellent wines that are priced extremely modestly. Farr Vintners is pleased to offer you today the very good 2014 vintage at an exceptional price of £120 per dozen - this is a price that simply cannot be matched elsewhere.

Bernadotte is some 3 kilometres inland from prestigious châteaux such as Grand-Puy-Lacoste, Batailley and Pontet-Canet. In fact until recently it was owned by Pichon Lalande before being sold to a Chinese investor in 2012.
2014 was a very good vintage in the Northern Médoc and this wine showed well in the recent Southwold Group tasting, being placed nearly level with La Lagune and above the likes of Potensac, La Tour Carnet and Chasse Spleen. It has excellent tasting notes from the leading critics including a 91 point rating from Antonio Galloni of Vinous.
At the fantastic price of just £120 per dozen bottles in bond, with further discounts for quantity, this is the perfect wine to have as your go-to, house Bordeaux.

"The 2014 Bernadotte is dense, plush and inviting. Succulent red stone fruit, pomegranate and expressive floral notes are all fused together in this deep, pliant Haut-Médoc. The 2014 is best cellared for another year or two, as the tannins are a bit firm today and the oak needs to fully integrate. Even so, the 2014 is gorgeous.”

"Attractive walnut and cassis character married to some spicy oak, and there’s a balance of dry tannins, fresh acidity and a sleek body that’s really classic and harmonious. Hard not to drink now.”

90 points, James Suckling,, February 2017

"The 2014 La Bernadotte has a brisk black cherry and raspberry-scented nose with dried leaf and graphite notes lending complexity. This is well defined and displays good vigor. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, supple in the mouth with clean, fresh and quite minerally red fruit. This is a pretty Bernadotte that should give plenty of drinking pleasure over the next decade.”

89 points, Neal Martin, Wine Advocate, September 2016
