“Derived from Cabernet Sauvignon vines in a late-ripening tree-lined enclave in Cissac-Médoc, Uchida’s 2020 Miracle offers up aromas of rich cherries, berries, petals, vine smoke and carnal nuances. Medium to full-bodied, supple and sapid, with a fleshy core of fruit, powdery tannins and a penetrating finish, it was fermented at low temperatures with minimal sulfur dioxide and around one-third whole bunches. Drink: 2022-2033. 92 points

Born in Hiroshima, Osamu Uchida launched his small winery in 2015 with 0.6 hectares of late-ripening Cabernet Sauvignon in Cissac-Médoc, but he now farms three hectares, with Merlot since 2019 and some white varieties that he planted in 2020. Farming is attentively organic and now biodynamic, with very low levels of sulfur dioxide and a minimalistic approach to vinification (including some whole bunches) in the winery. Aromatic, sensual and just a little wild, these original, characterful wines offer a different vision of what Bordeaux can be.”
