This collection includes three of our favorite critically acclaimed Bordeaux wines. Bordeaux is a powerhouse producer of wines of all colors, sweetness levels, and price points. Separated from the Atlantic Ocean by a coastal pine forest, the relatively flat region of Bordeaux has a mild maritime climate, marked by cool wet winters and warm summers. Annual weather differences create significant vintage variations, so producers in the area cannot rely too heavily on any single grape variety. For this reason, Bordeaux wines are usually blends. Makes a great gift!
Wine Gift Set Includes:
- 2014 Chateau German
Intense color, ruby reflections, shiny. Black fruit, blackberry, blackcurrant, blueberry aromas with toasted notes. Authenticity of the terroir through the tannic structure and fruitiness of the wine. The nature of the sandy-gravelly soil acts as a flavor enhancer and is found in the minerality of this wine.
Rated 90 Points: Wine Enthusiast
- 2014 Chateau Mayne Vieil Cuvee Alienor
Chateau Mayne-Vieil Cuvee Alienor is a selection of old Merlot vines planted on clay and gravel. The vineyard is grassed - without leaves on one side - and green-harvested. While decreasing yields, this method provides better ventilation for the grapes.
Rated 92 Points: Wine Enthusiast
- 2016 Chateau le Doyenne
Chateau Le Doyenne results from the mature parcels of vines. The wine is aged in oak barrels for 18 months. Dark ruby or purple color, aromas of black fruit and fine woody notes. Beautiful aptitude for ageing.
