CDT Rouge, Château du Champ des Treilles

£21.00

A great value Bordeaux from a pioneering couple

Champ des Treilles is the family domaine of Corinne and Jean-Michel Comme. It was Jean-Michel’s grandparents, freshly arrived from their native Italy and eager to put down roots in their new home, who planted the first vines (1920s) in the far eastern corner of the Entre-Deux-Mers. JM took over from his parents when they retired. Although deeply attached to the property, he struggled to carry on after losing his mother to cancer, convinced the cause was the chemicals used to treat the vineyards. Corinne helped him back on his feet and together they decided to experiment with biodynamic viticulture in the late 90s – a revelation for the couple.

Although Corinne had no previous background in viticulture or winemaking, she grew into the role, learning on the job to become the driving force behind the family domaine, and a world-renowned expert on biodynamics, consulting for properties in Bordeaux and around the globe.

Corinne and Jean-Michel capture the essence of biodynamic fruits by delicate extraction and ageing in concrete vats – no oak whatsoever,  The fruit is ripe, with dark cherry, fruits of the forest, hints of spice, and dark chocolate. It has a lovely play on the palate with great freshness and very finely tuned, ripe tannins. A brilliant wine of astonishing value.
