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.
"Why POPCORN: “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, Winemaker
