Taste 3 Terrific Bordeaux under $19.99
SATURDAY MARCH 9th 3 - 5 PM
++ Taste 2009 Belair Monange *50% Off*


Bordeaux Month is heating up!!! Tomorrow we will taste four Bordeaux reds including three outrageous bargains from top Bordeaux importer : TOUTON WINES. Plus, as our Showstopper of the Day, we will pour 2009 Belair Monange Saint Emilion and offer it at 50% off for $99.99/bottle...it is going to taste SO beautiful at 10 years from the vintage! Our theme for this event is 'Taste how good Merlot can be!!!' California winemakers have made a concerted effort to focus their efforts on the regal Cabernet Sauvignon grape which originated in Bordeaux. Cabernet Sauvignon is specifically emphasized by the Bordelais on the Left Bank, in Pauillac and Saint Julien, for example, but over on the Right Bank, Merlot is King, where the soils and climate are perfectly suited for this grape. And, actually, almost every Bordeaux has some % of Merlot blended into it, coveted for its velvety nature, ripeness of fruit and depth of flavor. All four wines that we will taste on Saturday are made of mostly Merlot, with two wines from the illustrious sub-region of Saint Emilion. We can't wait to see you and share some good Bordeaux together!

Château-Les-Grands-Marechaux Premieres Cotes de Blaye 2015

RATED 91 WINE ENTHUSIAST : 'This opens to reveal fine blackberry fruit and fresh acidity. It's a generous wine, the wood aging giving tannins and spice while the delicious fruit offers a rounder, smoother side.'

Chateau du Basque St. Emilion 2015

bot 92

RATED 92 BOTTLESHOP.COM : 'This is exactly what a lovely Saint Emilion should taste like…pure and aromatic with red roses, red cherries and purple plums, this wine is ripe without being jammy and wonderfully balanced. Good length on the palate and silky tannins create a crowd-pleasing, reasonably priced Merlot-based classic.' We suggest serving this classic Saint Emilion with rack of lamb followed by Comte Gruyere and Dijon mustard, or with steaks, pork roasts, tuna steaks, Petit Basque sheep's milk cheese & cured meats.

Chateau Belair Monange Saint Emilion 2009

wa 94+ we 94

RATED 94+ WINE ADVOCATE : 'This extraordinary terroir, now exploited by Edouard Moueix, the son of Christian, seems to be coming to life in a dramatic fashion. Never a hedonistic wine, but very intellectual, the 2009 suggests a liqueur of crushed rocks intermixed with black currants and black cherries. Medium to full-bodied, and impressive, this is a wine to drink over the next 30+ years. If readers are looking for the quintessential example of a terroir-dominated wine, this is Lesson 101 in terroir.'
