This is layered and very pretty with berries, currants and hints of dark chocolate. Medium to full body, firm tannins and a fresh finish. Drink now or hold.

Previous owned by the late Vincent Mulliez (who owned Belle-Vue), Château Bolaire is in the southern part of the Médoc and consists of very old vines of Petit Verdot Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2015 Château Bolaire is another outstanding gem in the vintage and is a unique blend of 60% Petit Verdot, 35% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. Giving up lots of black cherries, cedary spice and lead pencil nuances, it’s a medium-bodied, shockingly elegant and charming for a Petit Verdot, has plenty of character, and will keep for a decade. While I don’t know the price, I suspect it’s a smokin’ value.

Chateau Bolaire, France
Chateau Bolaire Winery Image
Chateau Bolaire, built in 1860, is located "at the end of the island" of Macau in Médoc. This strip of land connected to the médulienne peninsula was before an island of the Garonne.

Thanks to ideal conditions for viticulture (close to the river, natural drainage), this region has a wine past: the 16th and early 17th century represent the golden age of the vineyards. Since that glorious time, the vineyard has evolved, but the tradition remains present: the Petit Verdot grape variety represents 39% of the plantings.

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.
