Tasting Notes:

A true Bordeaux, simple yet so well balanced and rich with a fullness of flavours of red fruits, plum and blackberry. True honest tastes of it’s terroir and origins.

Pleasant soft tannins, combine with the fruits ending in a enduring satisfying finish.

Food and Pairing:

Goes with steaks barbeques, poultry, Pork cold cuts and is fabulous on its own.

The Wine:

Bordeaux has a cool marine coastal climate, with mild weather and no dry season. Bordeaux reds tend to be lower in alcohol and are slightly lighter in body.

Stylistically, they exhibit more nuanced flavours and less up-front fruit. Sophisticated and elegant, they pair well with game meats, roast lamb, or hearty beef stews.

Bordeaux is the largest wine producing region in France. It consists of two major areas—the Left and the Right Bank. Both lie in the heart of the Gironde estuary and are further divided by its tributaries, the Garonne and the Dordogne rivers.

While the Right Bank produces blends that are mostly Merlot dominant, the Left Bank produces blends that are primarily Cabernet Sauvignon dominant.

Bordeaux reds are said to be terroir-driven (if you like French wines, you'll hear this term a lot). Terroir is a concise way to define a specific region based upon the soil, climate, and the collective knowledge of the generations of people who have farmed the land.

When shopping for Bordeaux reds, keep in mind, French wines are all about the region and the blend, not about individual grape varieties. In fact, you will rarely find blend percentages listed on the label.

Collectively, Bordeaux produces 700 million bottles of wine in an average year! While some of the most expensive wines in the world come from Bordeaux, most are every day, affordable table wines.

Grape Varieties:

Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot sometimes Cabernet Frank
