In May's Decanter Magazine was Steven Spurrier's "World", Bordeaux 2007 'revisited'. A tasting attended by 12 of the UK's most influential merchants and 2 writers (Steven himself & Neal Martin of eRobertParker). A tasting of 230 wines in 21 flights based on classification & price. In the Medoc/Haut-Medoc catagory, voted top wine was Ch. Bernadotte & second was Ch. La Lagune. Makes Bernadotte amazing value at £13.50!
Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande acquired Château Bernadotte in the Commune of Saint Sauveur which borders the Pauillac appellation to the west close to a number of classified growths and only a few kilometers away from Pichon. This property is attractive due to its quality soil made up of a very fine plateau of gravel on clay, by its position close to Pauillac and by its proximity to prestigious classified growths. In 1998, May-Eliane de Lencquesaing and her team made important investments not only in the château, vat room and cellars but also in the vineyard (a study was made of the soil, vine-stock was replaced, and parcels replanted). New buildings for storage have been built and the property today is fully equipped with all the facilities necessary for the elaboration of a great wine.
