Winemaker Notes

The 2003 vintage delivers a beautifully balanced wine with intense fruit characteristics.

This prestigious tête de cuvée honors the visionary work of Guy Devaux. Brilliant and clear, this vintage selection has a pale straw loveliness that opens with toasted almonds, honey and lemon zest. A complex finish lingers with tones of creamy yeast notes, clove, granny smith apples and a hint of apricot. We recommend enjoying with sautéed scallops over linguini, wild mushroom risotto, tuna saltimbocca or simply great company.

Critical Acclaim

WS 93
Wine Spectator

Sleek and elegant, with apple blossom and spiced ginger aromas that lead to rich yet delicate flavors of baked pear and crème brûlée, mixed with crisp citrus. Finishes with a vibrant, mineral-laced acidity. Drink now through 2016. 1,000 cases made.

WE 91
Wine Enthusiast

A brut-style sparkler, at the age of eight years it’s still fresh and crisp, with yeasty flavors of limes, strawberries, vanilla and toast. Feels dry and austere despite a honeyed richness, just what you want in a great sparkling wine. Seems best over the next six years.

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.
