The Haut-Médoc property of Château Bernadotte has seen quite a bit of investment over the last few decades, contributing to a steady rise in its reputation. The château lies just over 1km away from Mouton Rothschild with its vines planted on the same coveted gravel soils. This is, therefore, a remarkable wine considering the price – a Haut-Médoc in name with Pauillac aspiration.

Tasting notes:
'Formerly the property of one of Napoleon's generals, this estate is now performing impressively after renovations. This wine is richly structured and packed with black fruits. Dark tannins vie with black currants and ripe spice in this wine that will age well. Drink from 2024' – Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast, 91/100

'This has a very plush and slightly spicy palate with earthy notes as well as a gravelly, slightly leafy edge. The palate has a very composed core of fine, long tannins that finishes with gently grippy freshness. Try from 2021.' – James Suckling, 91/100

'The 2015 Bernadotte shoots above my expectation. It has a clean and fresh bouquet with plenty of appealing graphite notes. The palate is medium-bodied with dusky black fruit sprinkled with black pepper, good length and nicely focused. Tasted blind at the Southwold 2015 Bordeaux tasting.' – Neal Martin, Vinous, 90/100

'One of the stand-out Cru Bourgeois I was able to taste is the 2015 Château Bernadotte which checks in as 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlot, and the balance Petit Verdot, aged 12 months in one-third new barrels. It’s a terrific, floral, seamless, medium-bodied beauty that offers fine tannin, a silky texture, and integrated acidity. It shows the purity of the vintage and should drink nicely for a decade or more. Drink 2018 – 2028.' – Jeb Dunnuck, 90/100
