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! 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.
