Vin Pop Château Surain Popcorn 2018
Vin Pop Château Surain Popcorn is a fruity and light hearted Bordeaux wine that is a little funky and very affordable. Intense ruby colour in the glass, from which wafts blueberry, tobacco and red fruit aromas. Round and powerful body with an edge of tannins and acidity to give it fantastic structure. Bold blackberry, crushed wild strawberry and blackcurrant flavours with a spicy tobacco, cocoa and toffee underpinning.
“Heating corn too much makes it pop just like a winemaker who gets heated from hearing that Bordeaux is too expensive, too old and so on. I created Popcorn, a fruity Bordeaux wine that is fun and affordable.” – Adrien Surain.
100% Merlot. From a wine estate that has been in Saint-Gervais, Bordeaux, for 100 years. The fruit comes from a single estate vineyard, which is sustainably farmed without the use of herbicides. The grapes are honest, tasting the way they have been treated.
AWARDS & ACCOLADES
- 88 POINTS
The first vintage from Adrien Surain, the latest generation of the family to take over the reins of the estate, this is boldly packaged in a Burgundy-shaped bottle, no doubt meant to disrupt the classic Bordeaux scene as much as the name 'Popcorn'. A powerful wine with 15% alcohol, it has an intensely deep and dark crimson/black colour, the nose vinous with black vine fruits and plum, a nicely spicy tobacco edge too. In the mouth it is smooth and dense, but does seem to have a little edge of tannin and acidity to give a touch more structure, a touch more energy compared to the 2015 for example, a twist of liquorice joining the plummy dark fruits.
