Critical Acclaim

RP88 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 29th Apr 2015

"The 2012 Caduce (70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, and the balance Malbec and Cabernet Franc) is a major over-achiever. Delicious, ripe black cherry and blackcurrant fruit, spice and earth jump from the glass of this dense ruby/purple wine. Medium-bodied, fleshy and plump, this is a hedonistic tour de force that should drink nicely for another 3–4 years." (88 pts.)

VN88 Vinous Jan 2016

"Dark red cherry, plum, smoke and leather meld together in Domaine du Bouscat’s 2012 Caduce. Drink this fleshy, open-knit wine over the next few years. As always, Caduce is ripe and racy in style. At around $15 a bottle, Caduce is also one of the very best values readers will find in Bordeaux, anywhere for that matter. The 2012 is 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Malbec and 5% Cabernet Franc." (88 pts.)

Bordeaux

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.

France

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.
