Where It's From

Region / Bordeaux

View more wines from 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.

Country / France

View more wines from 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.

Wow. The blackberry, dried-flower and orange-peel aromas are so impressive at first, but then they go to black truffle and wet earth. Full-bodied with a solid core of powerful yet fine-grained tannins. It goes on for minutes. A very muscular La Fleur-Pétrus. Drink after 2025.
JD9898 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 2/28/2019
The 2016 Château La Fleur-Petrus is more regal and elegant, with an incredibly floral quality in its red and blue fruits, crushed rock, forest floor, and graphite-tinged aromas and flavors. This medium to full-bodied, rich, layered effort has notable structure, integrated acidity, beautiful balance, and a rock star finish. This is pure class and a thrilling La Fleur Petrus that needs 4–5 years of bottle age and will cruise for 2–3 decades.
RP9797 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Nov 2018
Blended of 91% Merlot and 9% Cabernet Franc, the medium garnet-purple colored 2016 la Fleur-Petrus reveals stunning Black Forest cake, redcurrant jelly and wilted roses scents with underlying suggestions of pencil shavings, yeast extract, dark chocolate and cloves. Medium to full-bodied, the mid-palate possesses superb intensity and depth with layers of perfumed black fruits and loads of red fruit sparks framed by firm, ripe, grainy tannins and oodles of freshness, finishing on a lingering earthy note. (Lisa Perrotti-Brown)
VN9797 pts. - Vinous - Jan 2019
The 2016 La Fleur-Pétrus soars out of the glass with striking aromatics. Light on its feet yet also quite fleshy, the 2016 has so much to offer. Blood orange and floral notes add brightness to the red-toned fruit in this silky, beautifully nuamced Pomerol. The 2016 is rich, dense and spectacularly beautiful, with a persistent, saline-drenched finish that makes it hard to resist a second taste. (Antonio Galloni)
WE9595 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 5/1/2019
This wine comes from a large (for Pomerol) 46-acre vineyard. It has weight and density as well as dark tannins and rich black fruits. It shows great style with its beautifully integrated tannins. This wine will age well, ready to drink from 2025. (Roger Voss)
SP9494 pts. - Wine Spectator - Mar 31, 2019
Ripe and warm in feel, with an alluring mix of creamy textured cherry, red currant and raspberry reduction notes, mixed with black tea and incense accents. Features a buried spine of graphite, with a hint of Turkish coffee lurking at the very end. Best from 2022 through 2036. 3,100 cases made. (James Molesworth)

Chateau Potensac Medoc 2016 / 750 ml.

2016 / 750 ml.

Item #: 94045

JD9191 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - February 28, 2019
Another sleeper is the 2016 Château de Potensac, which is 44% Merlot, 39% Cabernet Sauvignon, and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, all aged 14 months in 30% new French oak. This beauty is upfront and ready to go, with a dark, rich bouquet of currants, unsmoked tobacco, graphite, and earth. With beautiful concentration and a layered, elegant texture, it’s one of those wines that has ample upfront appeal yet will keep for 15+ years. (Jeb Dunnuck)
RP9090 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Nov 2018
Blended of 44% Merlot, 39% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot, the medium to deep garnet-purple colored 2016 Potensac features chocolate box and Sichuan pepper scents with a core of cassis, warm blackberries, kirsch and menthol. Medium to full-bodied, it has a great core of expressive black fruits, grainy tannins and lovely freshness, finishing with a red fruit lift.
SP8989 pts. - Wine Spectator - Jan 31, 2019
Open-knit, with a mix of bramble, sweet tobacco and steeped red and black currant fruit flavors. A lightly roasted apple wood note and a flash of iron check in on the finish, adding spine. Drink now through 2029. 23,333 cases made. (James Molesworth)

Chateau Brehat | Castillon Cotes de Bordeaux 2016 / 750 ml.

Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux
2016 / 750 ml.

Item #: 99033

JS9191 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Sunday, February 3, 2019
There’s a strong and assertive feel to this Castillon with abundant red plums and berries, delivering freshness and verve on the palate. Juicy, powdery tannins. A blend of 70 per cent merlot, 15 per cent cabernet franc and 15 per cent cabernet sauvignon. Try from 2020.
JD9191 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 2/28/2019
The Merlot-dominated 2016 Château Brehat comes from the limestone soils of the Côtes Castillon region of Bordeaux, located east of Saint Emilion. It has a pretty, perfumed style in its black raspberry and cassis fruits as well as some obvious minerality and floral notes, medium body, fine tannins, and beautiful purity of fruit. With notable balance, integrated structure, and a great finish, it’s another rocking 2016 to drink over the coming 10–12 years. (Jeb Dunnuck)
WE8888 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 2/1/2019
The rich black fruits in this wine from property in the Monteil family since the 15th century are full of promise. Dark tannins, spice and licorice balance the fruitiness, suggesting aging potential. Drink from 2021. (Roger Voss)
