Sichel, Pauillac, France, 2017
Maison Sichel are renowned for snapping up parcels of de-classified wines from some of the very best estates at bargain prices allowing them to sell it out to people like us who can then offer what surely must be the very best value Pauillac on the market?
Declassified means it’s from the same vineyards, albeit likely the youngest of the vines, and bottled under a less grand title but that’s why the decimal place in the price is after the second number and not the third.
Regardless, the pedigree is clear. This wine defies the lacklustre perception of the 2017 vintage, making for fantastic short term drinking with notes of ripe cassis, boysenberry, a touch of graphite and air dried tobacco on the finish. A fab Pauillac at under £25.
