When people talk about the mercurial nature of the
Bordeaux wine market they tend to be talking only about the
very top wines rather than the majority of the production
which offers much greater stability on pricing and certainly
more affordable, more everyday drinking claret.
At Alliance, our portfolio focuses on those wines from
Bordeaux that are relevant to the
restaurateur and consumer alike.
Our Château Les
Platanes has been a huge hit and demonstrates without doubt
that Bordeaux can offer excellent quality and great value.
This modern approach Claret from the Côtes de Bordeaux is one
to try this year if you haven't already.
Also gaining in popularity are our wines from St Émilion, Château
Ferrand is one of the few Châteaux to offer mature (minimum of
5 years) Grand Cru Bordeaux that is ready to drink yet capable
of further cellaring. On the Left Bank, Château Lamothe Cissac, our
Cru Bourgeois from the Haut-Médoc remains a favourite, from a
plot adjacent to Pauillac these wines show a modern twist on the
Our range is complimented by some carefully chosen Cru Classés
which are bought on a parcel basis and will vary in
availability throughout the year.
