Chateau de Terrefort Lescalle Bordeaux
Chateau de Terrefort Lescalle Bordeaux - Away from the glamour and hype of the top fifty-odd chateaux, the quiet revolution continues in Bordeaux, with these uniquely digestible wines benefiting from the gloss of modern winemaking while retaining their trademark elegance and savouriness.
The key at this level is to find the estates with superior soil, Terrefort-Lescalle is on alluvial clay in the Medoc commune of Macau, a stone's throw from fifth-growth Cantemerle. A medium-bodied, approachable claret with juicy berry fruit backed up by savoury tobacco notes. Classically proportioned and elegantly balanced.
