Grown on a tiny 2 hectare sandy plateau near Fronsac, these grapes (Malbec and Merlot) spent 8 months in cement vats before bottling. Full, ripe and bursting with fruit, this wine would sell for more than twice the price in a more prestigious appellation. Try it with mushrooms à la bordelaise. Only 1000 cases produced.

The undisputed king of France's wine regions, Bordeaux sits amidst and astride the rivers Dordogne and Garonne. Accounting for some 800 million bottles produced each year, Bordeaux has built its reputation on quality, with some of the world's most sought-after wines being crafted along the river banks. Bordeaux also creates a large amount of table wine, mostly sourced from the lesser of Bordeaux's 57 appellations. Bordeaux boasts over 10,000 winemakers. Known mostly for the red blends, Bordeaux also enjoys notoriety for its excellent sweet white wines, as well as several high-quality dry whites created mostly in the central regions between the two rivers.

A nice medium to full bodied wine with soft tannins.
