90+ Point Bordeaux Gift Set
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.

- 2014 Clarendelle Inspired by Haut-Brion
A deep color and a soft bouquet of liquorice and blackcurrant. The wine has violet and slightly toasty nuances on the palate. The texture is velvety and the flavor altogether powerful and elegant. There is a wonderful refined balance between high-quality tannin, concentration, tension, and freshness. A lovely vintage for Clarendelle!
