Tasting Note

This soft, supple wine could easily be from Bordeaux. It has a lovely combination of gentleness of texture with classic dryness, and a mix of red berry fruit and savoury herbiness, just like a refreshing claret. In common with all of Martin's wines, it has beautiful purity and precision of flavour, and superb balance.

Winemaking

The varieties are vinified separately and some of the Merlot is aged in tank with micro-oxygenation to preserve freshness. The Cabernets are aged in barrels for about a year before the blend is assembled. Bottled in Feb 2013.

Food Recommendation

A wine for every day that offers just that little bit more. Good for simply drinking as well enjoying with a meal - try with charcuterie, hard cheeses, olives, beef carpaccio or even a sirloin.

Customer Reviews

  • Could easily be a Bordeaux Cru Classé 'deuxième vin'

    I have tasted on many occasions the 'second wines' made by famous châteaux in Bordeaux. These are usually impeccably-made, and in a style that is more immediately enjoyable than the corresponding 'grand vin'. They are also less expensive, although this typically still means a price tag of £25-£100, depending on the prestige of the maker. Meinert's 'La Barry' is made very much along the same lines - soft, succulent and immediately enjoyable, with a classic, old-world dryness. This could easily be the 'deuxième vin' of a Cru Classé - but it is approachable in price, as well as in style.
