Chateau Bibian Haut Medoc 2015

WOW! YEEEEE-haaa! Not only is the California water drought over, so is the 91-POINT 2015 BORDEAUX drought! Woo hoo!!

As you’ve heard us yell from the rooftops, ‘15 and ‘16 in Bordeaux are teeth-rattlingly good. To find a 91-pointer for this price...well, suffice to say we pulled every string, every rope, every fiber-optic cable we could to get enough to offer you, you sweet, fine, lovely people!! YES!

Château Bibian is one of the oldest and most renowned properties in the commune of Listrac situated in the Médoc. It’s much less well-known than its famous neighbours, partly because it’s the smallest of the left-bank communes. But this is good news for wine lovers because it means you can enjoy a wine of classed growth quality at a fraction of the price, and then we come along and do what we do best! 

On a serious qualitative roll for the last decade or so, you’ll taste it here! Wow! Deep blue fruits, red plumminess, nicely integrated baking spices and even a touch of root beer. Lovely, fine, soft texture, with good grip and balance of power and freshness. A huge, colossal, gargantuan no-brainer for those who love modern-styled, lush Bordeaux! While it lasts….

About The Producer

In 1857, Pierre Bibian brought together the vineyard that he inherited from his father. In 1932, Château Bibian was classified Cru Bourgeois Supérieur and changed hands in 1999: it was taken over by Alain Meyre, winegrower in Listrac and owner of Château Cap Léon Veyrin. Thanks to the help of his two children, he has breathed new life into the property and has produced wines typical to Haut-Médoc, with strength and elegance, harmony and a touch of modernism.

he 20-hectare vineyard stretches over the whole appellation, thus enjoying the various soil types of the Listrac Médoc terroirs.

Composed mostly of old vines (40 years), this wine shows the typical character of the greatest wines of the appellations.

Nathalie and Julien manage this property together, marrying traditional methods with modern techniques.
