2014 Vintage

CHATEAU BISetiquette-cht-biston-brillette_2014TON-BRILLETTE 2014

Cru Bourgeois

The outstanding back season upset the destiny of the vintage.

Intensive work to obtain good grapes, strict selections and specific vinifications gave rich and deep colorful juices.

Well done blending: beautiful dark color with violet hues, delicate nose, fruity flavors with a touch of smoke and roasted oak. Palate with a lot of charm, balanced, dense. Tasty finish, fresh and minty. The promise of a great year!

Guide Gilbert & Gaillard 2017 (90)
Very dense, young hue with crimson highlights. Delicate nose gradually opening up to fruit tones and roasted coffee notes from the oak. Ample attack showing freshness and quite pleasant substance. The oak is still predominant but should mellow.
 
Primeurs 2014 : La sélection de Bernard Burtschy – 15,5/20
A beautiful full and dense wine with nice fruit. The honest  viticulture of the vineyard works perfectly in this vintage.

Journal Le Point, Bordeaux le millésime 2014, juin 2015 16/20
Black fruits, spices, licorice, sweet palate, soft, elegant, a style that is reminiscent of  Margaux, with very silky tannins.

My BETTANE + DESSEAUVE, L’intégrale Bordeaux primeurs 2014 – Note 87 (14/20)
Classical texture and modern tannin in the same time, here is a strong  Moulis,  full, tasty.
