Winemaker Notes

Ruby dark color. Fresh, soft, and sweet ripe nose of black currant followed by spicy notes of white pepper, fresh tobacco and cedar. This medium bodied wine shows elegant tannins. It is very approachable and matches perfectly with steaks, pork loin, poultry, pasta, hamburgers, and barbecue.

60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot

Sustainably Grown

James Suckling
Attractive violets and redcurrants with darker forest berries and graphite, too. The palate has a lithe and plush red-fruit core. Vibrant berries abound. Good wine. Try from 2022.

Wine Enthusiast
This generous wine comes from a 239-acre property. It has weight, layers of black-currant flavors balanced by rich tannins and juicy acidity. The fruitiness is intense, given essential freshness by the crisp aftertaste. Drink the wine from 2022.

COMMENTARY: The 2016 Château Blaignan is a well-built red that delivers nicely. TASTING NOTES: This wine shines with aromas and flavors of black cherries and cassis, as well as hints of earth savory spices and oak. Pair it with a grilled, well-marbled ribeye. (Tasted: October 2, 2021, San Francisco, CA)

Chateau Blaignan Winery Video

Château Blaignan is the one of the oldest winemaking estate in the Médoc region of Bordeaux. Documents dating back to the 15th century reveal that vineyards were planted in the hamlet of Blaignan for nearly 600 years. It is recognisable by its distinct tower which is in the heart of the vineyard. It is currently owned by the CA Grands Crus. They also owns Château Grand Puy Ducasse, Pauillac 5ème Grand Cru Classé, Château Meyney, St.-Estèphe, and Château de Santenay in Burgundy. The groups is deeply committed to the renaissance of the Château Blaignan. They invested over 3 million euros in the vineyards and brand new 100% temperature controlled cellars with small stainless steel vats for vinification by parcels. 

The vineyard is 87 hectares in size (215 acres) is composed of limestone soils from a single vineyard. The average age of the vines is 25 years old. The vineyard goes through green harvest, leaf thinning and grass growing between rows to lower the yields. It is also certified ecologically sensitive with no usage of pesticides or herbicides. During the harvest, the grapes are picked up by plots and are vinified in 45 different size vats. After the fermentation, the wine is aged in stainless steel tanks and oak barrels for 12 months.

Château Blaignan is wine by Anne Le Naour (Managing Director and Head of Winemaking) and Hubert de Boüard (Consultant Winemaker and owner of Château Angelus, 1er Grand Cru Classé “A” Saint-Emilion). With this star winemaking team, they’re able to craft an outstanding wine that over delivers in quality every year. In a way, it benefits from “Grand Cru Classé” input while remaining affordable and accessible for the consumer.

One of the most—if not the most—famous red wine regions of the world, the Medoc reaches from the city of Bordeaux northwest along the left bank of the Gironde River almost all the way to the Atlantic. Its vineyards climb along a band of flatlands, sandwiched between the coastal river marshes and the pine forests in the west. The entire region can only claim to be three to eight miles wide (at its widest), but it is about 50 miles long.

While the Medoc encompasses the Haut Medoc, and thus most of the classed-growth villages (Margaux, Moulis, Listrac, St-Julien, Pauillac and St. Estephe) it is really only those wines produced in the Bas-Medoc that use the Medoc appellation name. The ones farther down the river, and on marginally higher ground, are eligible to claim the Haut Medoc appellation, or their village or cru status.

While the region can’t boast a particularly dramatic landscape, impressive chateaux disperse themselves among the magically well-drained gravel soils that define the area. This optimal soil draining capacity is completely necessary and ideal in the Medoc's damp, maritime climate. These gravels also serve well to store heat in cooler years.

One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, the best of these are densely hued, fragrant, full of fruit and boast a structure that begs for cellar time. Somm Secret—Blends from Bordeaux are generally earthier compared to those from the New World, which tend to be fruit-dominant.
