Bold, Beautiful & Bright Bordeaux

More Diverse Than You Thought

 

While it’s frequently associated with structured, tannic reds, Bordeaux is also home to incredible white, sparkling, and dessert wines. Break out of the mold with fresh, dinner-ready blends and dry, crisp bubbles. (Of course, if you want to get expert advice on age-worth classic reds, we’ve got that, too.)

Crémant de Bordeaux, Brut Zéro, Château Sicot $24.96

It’s easy to think of big, bold reds or lush dessert wines from Bordeaux, but sparklers are made there, too! Made in the driest possible style, this elegant-yet-festive blend of Sémillon and Colombard is a must-try bottle for your next party or as treat for yourself! – Bambi Ray, Wine & Spirits Sales Manager

Château Marzy, Pomerol $44.96

Marzy comes from Pomerol, the smallest commune in Bordeaux and home to world-class Merlot. Silky tannins, dark fruit, and cigar notes flood the palate and do not disappoint. – Laura Atbashian, Wine Buyer

Energies, Château Peybonhomme-Les-Tours $24.96

You don’t often hear the words “amphorae” and “Bordeaux” in the same sentence. Here’s a fresh, delicious red wine that spends 12 months in amphorae, traditional clay vessels, in lieu of oak. Black fruit flavors and refined minerality make “Energies” a great wine for the table. – Laura Atbashian, Wine Buyer

Château de Cranne, Bordeaux Blanc $14.96

An elegant white wine with a Sauvignon Gris base. Its white floral aromas and bright citrus flavors pair beautifully with fresh fish dishes. – Laura Atbashian, Wine Buyer

Sauternes, Château d’Yquem 2005 $249.96

Château d’Yquem is a historic producer and a favorite of collectors, especially the celebrated 2005 vintage. This luxurious wine is made from botrytised grapes and aged in barrel, giving it spicy notes alongside the succulent apricot and honeysuckle flavors. Built to age for decades. – Laura Atbashian, Wine Buyer
