Maison Sichel is a grower, winemaker and négociant éleveur - to save you reaching for your French dictionary, that last one's a purchaser of wine for bottling under its own name. Now I can't tell you exactly where Sichel source their Pauillac, but I can say that it's declassified fruit from one of Lafite-Rothschild, Latour or Mouton-Rothschild... First Growth-level fruit for under £25 - an unbelievable steal at 1/20th of the price of the Château label! Silky red fruit with a twist of pepper and liquorice spice, this is aged in barrel for 20 months. Rich and elegant, classic Claret. Drink to 2030.

"The 2017 Pauillac hails from an estate that will be loved and fêted in eternity and is in great form, showing just how well these wines develop, especially in slightly less well regarded vintages such as 2017. With luscious, plump Merlot to the fore, theres plenty of juicy fruit and theres elegance and restraint too and a deeply satisfying savoury finish."
