Grand Vin de Bordeaux

Cuvée le Bout du Monde

13281

This wine comes from a high quality terroir historically called « fields at the end of the world » and is located on a clay and limestone plateau overlooking the Dordogne.

The clay and limestone plateau of Cadillac brings about the full expression of traditional varieties, everything being combined to allow the perfect maturing of the fruit and the characteristics of a great wine.

The vinification is made classically, so as to use only the best and necessary parts of the grapes.

This wine is also the creation of two men : Richard Serisier, an Australian owner come back on ancestral ground, and Stéphane Renié, a French wine technician. Both are respectful of traditional and contemporary wine making techniques.

This wine is made with passion and care and rewards us with absolute pleasure…the end of the world.

This tasty vintage is quite what was expected by its author : the first elegant scent, once aired, yields subtle notes of red and black berries with a spicy touch. The taste of fruit becomes ample in the mouth, round and mellow at first, tighter and silky afterwards, he final taste revealing again the fruit and spices.

« Black fruits, round, fruity, supple in the mouth, mellowing pleasant, to be drunk without waiting. »

 

John Salvi, MW tasted in Bordeaux 2014

 

COLOUR: deep, rich, vivid colour with purple edge veering to ruby. Bright and attractive;

NOSE: Open, generous nose of ripe fruit. Black fruits with notes of cassis. Nose evolves with aeration into a clean, warm and fresh bouquet with Merlot predominating. The nose is perfumed but retains freshness with fragrant florality;

PALATE: Above all smooth, deep-fruited and spicy. Has character. Classical Merlot flavours. Wine is relatively complex, well structured and complete. Good, fresh and clean acidity. Smooth, almost silky, totally integrated tannins. The tannins and the acidity will ensure that the wine ages gracefully without deviating. Attractive underlying minerality. Good length and lingering aftertaste. A ripe, well-fruited, easy-drinking, supple and pleasant wine.

 

Peter Scudamore-Smith, MW tasted in Brisbane July 2015

 

A rich wine, a merlot of 100% cepage. There is a hint of New World thinking from the prominent fruit aromas (conserve, red fruits, white flowers) and nose richness from 15 months in French oak barrels (five makers) giving chocolate, mint and generous fruit complexity. The three weeks vatting gives robust yet gliding tannins, fullness and depth of after-flavours of cedar and oak camphor, spice and flavour density. It continues to build in the bottle since bottling: it shows pedigree in a region with more than 700 years of viticultural experience on these same soils. It enjoys breathing, aerating or decanting for up to a day.

The fruit on the nose is bright and fresh the start of the palate has a mix of bilberry and cassis. There is mid richness and sweetness black plums and ripe black cherry and although lighter and firmer at the back the finish has dark chocolate richness.

 

Ben Thomas, The Weekly Review, Melbourne, April 2016

 

Bordeaux wines are generally blends of cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc and merlot. This is all merlot. It’s a fruit-driven wine and there are aromas and flavours of dark berries, violets, liquorice bullets and cedar. The fruit is complemented by gravelly tannins that call out for a roast lamb and a lengthy, savoury finish. Score: 92/100

Red wine. Bordeaux supérieur.

 

Note : 89/100.

Tasting : year 2016

A vivid dark red colour with ruby reflections. An ample and pleasant nose of red and black stewed fruits with a roasted note of vanilla and cocoa. Velvety at first, silky palate with fine tannins, and a precise taste of fruit. A very harmonious wine, very successful !

Concentration and depth on the nose the palate has a rich mix of black cherry, Damson plum and cassis.

87/100

Tasting : year 2016

Garnet evolved with purple reflections. A fine note in the nose of vanilla wood, of ripe red and black fruit and toasted bread with an aftertaste of cocoa. Ample in the mouth, well balanced with still young tannins. The aromas are present and persistant. A wine to be kept for 2 to 3 years.
