Ch Haut-Pasquet Bordeaux Blanc 2016 Product #32020 (In Stock)
Ch Haut-Pasquet Bordeaux Blanc 2016 Ch Haut-Pasquet Bordeaux Blanc 2016

Back in the old days, pretty much all white Bordeaux was a blend of the region’s three complementary grapes:  Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, and Muscadelle.  As Loire Valley and New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc became more popular in the 1980s, Bordeaux growers began phasing out first Muscadelle (too hard to grow) and then Semillon (usually pulled up in favor of Cabernet and Merlot).  The resulting Sauvignon-dominant (or 100% Sauvignon) white Bordeauxs can be a lot of refreshing, pool-side, fun – but they lack more traditional wine’s complexity of flavors and mellow, food-friendly, textures.

So, finding a traditional blend like this one is a real treat, especially at this great value price.  Give it a swirl and you’ll find a classic white Bordeaux nose of lemon/tangerine fruit, grapefruit pith, a bit of fresh mown grass, and the note of wet wool that Semillon brings to Bordeaux.  With air, a note of passion fruit and crushed savory herb emerges.  It’s light to medium-bodied and very fresh and happy in the mouth with flavors of lemon drop, tangerine, crushed herb and passion fruit puree.  On the finish, the fresh lemon and lime zest character comes forward and you’ll notice your mouth watering as the lemon and herb flavors linger on.   A lovely wine for any shellfish and herb dish or for salads with goat cheese.

Ch La Roche St. Jean Blanc 2016 Product #32200 (In Stock)
Ch La Roche St. Jean Blanc 2016 Ch La Roche St. Jean Blanc 2016

A staff and customer favorite! This white Bordeaux starts with aromas of just-squeezed lemon and fresh cut grass. On the palate, there’s a nice, juicy hit of riper Meyer lemon that comes in, and the whole thing finishes mouthwateringly clean. While many white Bordeaux are blended with Semillon and Muscadelle to add waxy weight or fruitiness, Ch La Roche St Jean is 100% Sauvignon Blanc. There’s no oak to hide all that tangy fruit, and it’s a very reasonable 13.0% alcohol. If you’ve shied away from New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc because of its over-the-top grapefruitiness or overwhelming, pungent passionfruit flavors, this is the perfect SB for you.

Alas, this doesn't have anything to do with Ch Cheval-Blanc, but it is a very tasty, drink me now, Bordeaux!  From purchased fruit, it's a blend of 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc aged in tank.  Classic Bordeaux aromas and flavors of red currant, cherry, cedar and crushed herb with medium-bodied weight and a touch of dusty tannin at the end. A great match for lighter foods and lean meats.

Ch La Roche St. Jean Bordeaux Rouge 2015 Product #31344 (In Stock)
Ch La Roche St. Jean Bordeaux Rouge 2015 Ch La Roche St. Jean Bordeaux Rouge 2015

We’ve been fans of this small (for Bordeaux) family estate for years but the 2015 steps up the quality to an entirely new level! It’s a blend of un-oaked Merlot (70%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (30%) from the sand, clay and limestone soils of Bordeaux’s Entre Deux Mers region – part of the “Right Bank” that excelled in the outstanding 2015 vintage.

You'll find it deliciously fresh and fun from the first pour and sip, but the real fun comes over the next few hours (or days), as the aromas and flavors get deeper and darker, with black currant, cedar, and dark chocolate holding center stage and classic Bordeaux notes of cedar, tobacco and crushed herb emerging on top.  The texture stays wonderful throughout - mouthfilling and dense enough to demand attention but never heavy or thick or plodding.  And the finish just keeps getting better and better, smooth and long with lingering flavors of fruit, cedar, chocolate and spice.  Hard to resist right this second, but do yourself a favor and lay some down and then pull a bottle out for a special dinner up to 10 years from now.  No one will ever believe what you paid!

Great vintages in Bordeaux mean great values - because the "little" wines excel, too!  Chateau bottled at this Entre-Deux-Mers property, this is real, drinkable, Bordeaux at a fine value price. Aromas of currant, cedar, tobacco earth and smoke lead to a fruit-filled palate of cherry and blackcurrant and a nice dash of cedar and herb.  Chocolatey smooth in the middle before firming up nicely on the back.  Ready now.

Ch Desclau Bordeaux Superieur 2010 Ch Desclau Bordeaux Superieur 2010

Someday, all the little Bordeaux from the great 2010 harvest will be gone, but until then, the values remain superb.  Here's another, based on 40% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, and the rest Cab Franc, Malbec, and Petit Verdot.  The Verdot really shows her in notes of candied violet and rich chocolate while the Cabernets add cedar, tobacco, currant, and dark cherry notes.  Finishes firm with spice, cedar and currant lingering.  Delicious right now and will improve for another 5 years or so.

Ch Recougne Bordeaux Superior 2014 Ch Recougne Bordeaux Superior 2014

Once again, just lovely and superb value, too!

"The Ch√Ęteau Recougne 2014 is a blend of 90% Merlot, 2% Carmenere and 8% Cabernet Franc. It has a lovely, well-defined and vibrant nose, classic in style just like the old school label. The palate is medium-bodied with fresh red berry fruit, a keen line of acidity, plenty of vibrant cherries coming towards the graphite tinged finish. If you want a well crafted old fashioned Bordeaux wine, look no further! This is a great success for the estate under the guiding hand of Dr. Alain Raynaud."Wine Advocate 89-91 points

Ch Paveil de Luze Petit Paveil Bordeaux 2015 Product #32459 (In Stock)

From a top Margaux estate, Ch Paveil de Luze, this is pretty much everything you'd hope for in a ready-to-drink 2015 Bordeaux.  The main estate dates from the 17th Century, but this comes from a nearby vineyard not far from Margaux purchased in 2005.  It's a 70/30 Merlot/Cabernet Sauvignon blend - normal for AOC Bordeaux - that ages 10 months in French oak - unusual - about 25% of which are new - unheard of at this level!

The aromas, flavors, texture and complexity all punch well above this wine's modest price.  Bold aromas of red currant, tobacco, raspberry, and spice lead to a ripe, generous, mouthful of red berry, currant, cedar, tobacco and more.  The oak adds a lovely spice without getting in the way of 2015's generous fruit which keeps on pumping through a long, classically austere, finish.  Drink now - 2023 with increasing pleasure!

Petit Guiraud Sauternes 2013 (375ml) Petit Guiraud Sauternes 2013 (375ml)

The second wine from Ch Guiraud, this plays on the contrast between botrytis-tinged sweetness and clean Sauvignon Blanc fruit and acids. Rock solid Sauternes aromas and flavors of apricot, toasted almond, white peach, and honey, a creamy texture, and refreshing ginger and lemon notes on the finish.  For lighter desserts or even with savory caper/lemon sauce!

Ch d'Anice Graves Blanc 2015 Ch d'Anice Graves Blanc 2015

Want to remember why you used to love a good white Graves so much?  Or discover how much more there can be to white Bordeaux when snappy Sauvignon Blanc gets some extra depth from rich, round, earthy Semillon?  Try this 50/50 blend with a bit of neutral oak for extra complexity.  Plenty of stone and citrus fruit here with captivating notes of wet wool, smoke, and herb.  Round on the midpalate and then crisp and clean on the lemon, peach and herb finish.  A great match for herby casseroles or anything from the sea.

Ch Senejac Haut Medoc 2014 Product #32251 (In Stock)
Ch Senejac Haut Medoc 2014 Ch Senejac Haut Medoc 2014

Outstanding vintage, outstanding small producer. Decant or cellar 10 years.

"The 2014 Senejac has a withdrawn but well defined bouquet with more undergrowth aromas than many of its peers, unreservedly classic in style (and there is nothing wrong with that). The palate is medium-bodied with a ripe blackberry and boysenberry on the entry, a slight tinniness on the back palate with a very tightly wound finish."Wine Advocate 90 points

"This is a structured wine that has both firm tannins and ripe black plum fruits. It is concentrated and serious, the wood aging and the fruit tannins giving a lift and richness to the spicy fruit. The estate, dating to the 17th century, has 96 acres."Wine Enthusiast 91 points

Great vintages - like 2010 - deliver great wines up and down the price ladder.  And that's the story here with this iconic Haut Medoc Cru Bourgeois.  Sustainably farmed Cabernet Sauvignon (60%) and Merlot (40%) delivers lively aromas of plum, black cherry, and smoky herb and flavors of ripe currant, cedar, and spice.  Fine acids and soft tannins keep this refreshing and make it equally delicious at table or just to sip.  Outstanding value.

Ch Larose Perganson Haut Medoc 2010 Ch Larose Perganson Haut Medoc 2010

A terrific value in 2010 Bordeaux from 35 year-old vines growing on classic Bordeaux gravel soils just outside Pauillac and St. Julien. Aged in tank (15%) and oak (85%) including about 50% new French oak.  The blend is 50% Cabernet Sauvignon (for structure and power), 45% Merlot (for body and fruit) and 5% Petit Verdot (color, perfume), all from sustainably farmed 35 year-old vines. 

"A wine with sweet strawberries and raspberries on the nose. Full body, with ultra-fine tannins and a delicious finish. This is balanced and savory for the vintage. And it's an environmentally sustainable winery. Better after 2016."  James Suckling 92 points

"Sports bold, modern toast, with overt anise and blueberry notes leading the way, backed by racy plum and raspberry fruit. The solid finish shows the vintage's telltale graphite spine, offering lively acidity for balance. Best from 2014 through 2020."Wine Spectator 90 points

Dense and powerful but opening nicely.

"Dark, grippy and very tarry, with lots of pebbly tannins driving underneath the layers of boysenberry, steeped fig and blackberry fruit. Ample baker's chocolate and dark tobacco fill in the remaining space. This will need a little cellaring to round into form, but remains a very solid, muscular version. Best from 2015 through 2022."Wine Spectator 91 points

Drinks great with a decant now and will shine through 2024.

Ch Brown Pessac-Leognan 2012 Ch Brown Pessac-Leognan 2012

A big, rich, Bordeaux with density from Merlot (50%) and cut from Cabernet Sauvignon.  Supple and tempting now - 2032.

"A big, broad-shouldered wine, the 2012 Brown hits the palate with serious intensity and slightly rough contours that are going to need time to settle down. The high presence of Merlot (70%) and pushed, ripe style add to the wine's considerable personality. A rush of black cherry, plum, smoke, tobacco, licorice and incense leaves a positive last impression."  Vinous (Tanzer) 90 points

"Nicely packed, with energetic flavors of blackberry cobbler, blueberry paste and boysenberry coulis, carried by a brambly structure and pushed by anise and ganache accents on the finish. Shows solid grip and should do well with cellaring. This has added some weight since the barrel tasting."Wine Spectator 91 points
