2016 was an all round successful vintage for Bordeaux and Paradise Rescued, rounding off a nice hat-rick of vintages. The first half of the season was wet and cold but great flowering conditions followed by a warm dry summer with cool evening conditions setting up a great run into harvest.

Media tasting reports
“The stunning Paradise Rescued B1ockOne 2016 amply demonstrates the subtle charms of this lovely grape: elegant, smooth red and black fruit flavours, medium bodied, with characteristic hints of spice and chocolate with a lovely fresh vibrancy.” Terry Kirby, The Independent Nov 2020
“Paradise Rescued B1ockOne exhibits one of Bordeaux wines most attractive features : that combination of ripe red and black fruit with appetising freshness and some food friendly tannin…” David Williams, Guardian Newspaper UK Nov 2020
“2016 really caps off a run of three great vintages for us and has set a new benchmark for our winery. The IWC award and media tastings are a great credit to what our team in Cardan Bordeaux has achieved.” David Stannard, Owner.
