Wine Spectator

Heavily toasted but alluring, with warm cocoa and plum sauce notes followed by dark fig paste, currant preserve and black tea notes. Muscular but velvety on the toasty finish. Drink now. 50,000 cases imported.

Broquel
Broquel is an additional brand produced by Trapiche. With its 120 years of history Trapiche is reinforcing its leadership as the most exported wine brand of Argentina. Three years ago the company began an intensive transformation, both in the vineyards and in the winery to consolidate Trapiche's position as the leading wines of Argentina. One of the pillars in this transformation was to concentrate the responsibility of the vineyards and the winemaking in one Chief Winemaker; the appointed person for this ambitious objective was Mr. Daniel Pi.

The wines have a new international style, with more fruit and personality. The grapes are now not only coming from Trapiche's greatest vineyards in Mendoza, but also from the very best terroirs of Argentina.

All these changes needed to be shown not only inside the bottle but outside as well. A fresh, appealing, eye-catching and international packaging was developed across the entire portfolio.

Bordeaux Blends

View all wine

One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World, especially in California, Washington, and Australia. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec, and/or Petit Verdot, these are sometimes referred to in the US as “Meritage” blends. In Bordeaux itself, Cabernet Sauvignon dominates in wines from the Left Bank of the Gironde river, while the Right Bank focuses on Merlot. Often, blends from outside the region are classified as being inspired by one or the other.

In the Glass

Cabernet-based, Left-Bank-styled wines are typically more tannic and structured, while Merlot-based wines modeled after the Right Bank are softer and suppler. Cabernet Franc can add herbal notes, while Malbec and Petit Verdot contribute color and structure. Wines from Bordeaux can be bold and fruit-forward or restrained and earthy, while New World facsimiles tend to emulate the former style. In general, Bordeaux red blends can have aromas and flavors of black currant, cedar, plum, graphite, and violet, with more red fruit flavors when Merlot makes up a high proportion of the blend.

Perfect Pairings

Since Bordeaux red blends are often quite structured and tannic, they pair best with hearty, flavorful, and fatty meat dishes. Any type of steak makes for a classic pairing. Equally welcome with these wines would be beef brisket, pot roast, braised lamb, or smoked duck.

Sommelier Secret

While the region of Bordeaux is limited to a select few approved grape varieties, the New World is free to experiment. Bordeaux blends in California may include Syrah, Petite Sirah, Zinfandel, or virtually any other grape deemed worthy by the winemaker. In Australia, Shiraz is a common component.
