Critical Acclaim

RP87 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 29th Apr 2015

"Another major sleeper of the vintage that sells for about $12.00 retail, this blend of 85% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc is a real 2012 fruit bomb. Coming from limestone, sandy and clay soils, the wine is pure and offers a heady nose of forest floor, roasted herbs, and black and red currants, supple tannins and a nice, meaty, fleshy mouthfeel. I suspect it is best drunk within 2–3 years, although it might last longer. It is a great value." (87 pts.)

WE86 Wine Enthusiast 5/1/2015

"In the south of the Entre deux Mers region, this old property has produced a fruity, wood-aged wine. It has spice, smoky tannins and attractive, balanced black currant fruits. It’s likely to age over the medium-term, so drink from 2016." (86 pts.)

SP85 Wine Spectator Web only – 2015

"Gentle cherry and damson plum fruit flavors glide along, with a lacing of tobacco that lingers on the light-bodied finish. Drink now. 50,000 cases made." (85 pts.)


Bordeaux is known the world over for its exceptional wines, particularly red blends made with Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes, among others. These Cabernets aren't typically the full-bodied Cabs you get from California, but rather medium-bodied wines that emanate elegance and sophistication.

You'll also find some refreshing Bordeaux whites and, of course, Bordeaux's famous dessert wine, Sauternes.

The French did not invent winemaking. They simply perfected it. For centuries, France has been producing wines that inspire poetry, awe, and wonder; wines that blur the lines between nature, craftsmanship, cuisine and art. These are the wines that inspired cultures around the globe to follow in France’s footsteps, planting Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, Grenache, Merlot, Semillon and more.

Yet as often as they are emulated, the magic of their terroirs can never be duplicated. You may taste Cabernet from around the world, but perhaps none as elegant and regal as Bordeaux. You may try Pinot Noir or Chardonnay from various climates, but none with the earth-bound soul and ethereal reach of Burgundy.
