Les Hauts de Perganson, Haut-Médoc 2014 £18
This wine loves red meat with a good amount of fat and salt such as a well seasoned steak or rack of lamb. Simple is best in terms of seasoning here but fish can also work if served with a mushroom or tomato sauce, veal stock or a red wine reduction.
TYPE: Full bodied, lush ripe tannins, a delicious Bordeaux ready to drink now, but do decant an hour before drinking
TEMPERATURE: 16-200C Room Temp
ABOUT: Château Larose Perganson lies in Saint-Laurent-Médoc, on the border of Pauillac and Saint-Julien, next to the Château Latour vineyards. Here, winemaker Frank Bijon is producing a Cru Bourgeois that rivals the Classed Growths of the Médoc. Sustainability has been key to Larose Perganson since 1999 and it is the first (and only) vineyard in Europe to have been awarded the highest Exemplary Level in Sustainable Development. They are so dedicated to sustainability that they keep bees on their property to help the declining bee population.
