The Oddbins Take

The head Abbot of Haut-Médoc was utterly fed up. The vow of silence and bowl hair cuts was getting very tedious. He had a field festooned with fat cows and multiple mushrooms in the meadows . He really wanted a decent glass of red with his meat, so the Abbey gave up the altar decor helpline service (the vow of silence wasn't working with that anyway), and decided to make this red wine. Intense blueberries, plum and oak aromas and a palate of boasting power and finesse. After the vintage, the Abbot happily sat down for a meal and contemplated the moral of this story - 'Don't get whiney, make wine!'.

The Abbey de Vertheuil was founded in the 11th century by William VIII of Aquitaine. In 1850 the wine featured for the first time in the Féret wine guide, as one of the district’s leading producers. By 1868 the 2nd edition of Féret's guide referred to Château de L’Abbaye as a Cru Bourgeois and by 1932 this winery officially received Cru Bourgeois status. In 1988 the estate was taken over by Mercian Corporation, Japanese Wine and Spirits company and in 2014, Château de L’Abbaye was acquired by local wine company CVBG.
