Very Veyry 2015 is the superb entry level wine of Château Veyry, which comes from an excellent Bordeaux vintage in which it was awarded a Gold Medal at the Concours de Bordeaux and was purchased in its original cases.
Veyry is a garage wine – a term used to describe production that could fit into a garage. It is also literally a garage wine, comprising a battered old garage housing two battered old Citroens and disguising a small high-tech winery!
The estate's secret is a combination of the genius that is Christian Veyry with 4 hectares of south-facing vines that are a direct continuation of the limestone ridge upon which the great Saint-Émilions are based. Château Veyry is certainly in the same rich vein as this classic Bordeaux style, without the price premium of its more famous neighbours. Remarkable fine red wines from an unremarkable shed.

"This is a big, ripe, even slightly Porty style of wine with 15% alcohol, very much in the plush and modern 'garagiste' style. Saturated and dark, it is brimming with sweet black fruit, a chocolaty density and yet very good savoury aspects thanks to a little oak spice, firm creamy tannins and good acids. An impressive 'entry level' wine from this producer." Tom Cannavan
Spice, roasted nuts with chocolatey truffly aromas - savoury with rich, concentrated flavours and excellent vitality. You won't find more of a Bordeaux bargain than this gem.
