New Vintage at JN - Ch√Ęteau Mylord Rouge 2010

Ever since we shipped the 2009 vintage of Mylord, which Jim Nicholson described as "simply the best value Bordeaux I have ever purchased", we have been selling it hand over fist, such is its delicious blackberry fruit and silky mouthfeel.

Top wine commentator Robert Parker agrees with Jim referring to Mylord's value for money in glowing terms "It is an excellent example of how much bang one can get for the buck" (, Apr 2010).

"A richly fruity, uncomplicated, consumer friendly Bordeaux that has garnered a lot of admirers over recent vintages (the 2005 was beautiful), this offering reveals loads of strawberry, black cherry and wild raspberry fruit intermixed with loamy soil notes, and virtually no oak. Supple and round, it is best consumed over the next 1-2 years. 85-87 pts." (, May 2012)
