October 2017—Our 45th Anniversary!
A nose of black currant and tobacco, along with firm acidity and gravelly tannins, betrays its Bordelais origins: this could only be a Left Bank Cabernet Sauvignon, made in the style of yesteryear’s clarets.
The relatively small Château Aney sits in the heart of the Médoc, sandwiched between Saint-Julien and Margaux—in other words, prime real estate. The château is run by real vignerons from a local family rather than a banking group, luxury goods conglomerate, or other multinational corporation. Claret by the working man, for the working man! Get some for now and some more for later. —Anthony Lynch
