Quite a Claret
Is there anything more classic than Bordeaux? Button-up and laid-down or fruit-forward, young, and punchy—these wines are always a welcomed addition to the dinner table.
Season’s trends say broad shoulders are in style with these incredible picks from our staff.
A beautiful sparkling wine from the land of dry reds. Crémant de Bordeaux is made in the Champagne method, which gives this wine a rich texture and nuanced, floral nose and a crisp, dry finish. – Josh Mizrahi, Sales Manager
Château Falfas is an historic estate in the Côtes de Bourg. This magnum of Bordeaux comes their cherished old vines and is aged in new barrique for 2 years before bottling. It can be aged for another 10 to 20 years. – Lorena Ascencios, Wine Buyer
Château Pontet-Canet’s entire growing and winemaking practices were changed during this decade. This is an example of a delicious Bordeaux that has seen a decade of bottle age and is drinking well today. – Lorena Ascencios, Wine Buyer
Château Le Moulin is a small, 3 hectare property on the Right Bank of Bordeaux. This Pomerol drinks bests after a good 5 to 10 years of age, making it ideal at the moment. – Lorena Ascencios, Wine Buyer
A white Bordeaux from the Graves appellation that’s hand-harvested. After fermentation, it is aged in 4,000 liter barrels for 9 months resulting in a textured, full-bodied Bordeaux Blanc with a dry finish. – Lorena Ascencios, Wine Buyer
This is Château d’Yquem’s dry white wine, Ygrec (“e-greck”), which is based mostly on Sauvignon Blanc. The grape provides great acidity with the aromatic Sémillon adding unctuous texture. Barrel aged, it’s showy on the palate yet dry and sophisticated. – Lorena Ascencios, Wine Buyer
