Code: ZBXR-CCG11
Price: $22.84
Quantity in Basket: none

One of our "Finds" of the 2011 Vintage, of which few Bordeaux winemakers were able to produce excellent wines due to mediocre weather conditions. This wine is smooth and velvety exhibiting tight tannins and good fruit (plums, blackberries) using 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 60% Merlot with just enough time spent in Oak Barrels to make up this great example of lighter Bordeaux blends in the Graves style. This wine is drinkable now and will keep for many years if well stored, reaching perfect maturity in about 5-6 years (This is one of those wines I like to buy 12 for myself, drink half over the next year or so and forget about the rest for a couple of years when they will have become sublime)

GRAVES AOC CHATEAU BEAUREGARD LAGUPEAU 2010
Code: ZBXR-CBLG10
Price: $14.29
Quantity in Basket: none

Just Arrived!!!-- Chateau Beauregard Lagupeau - 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot,10% Cabernet Franc. This is an unbelievable value for such a great wine! Since 1850, Chateau Beauregard Lagupeau has been owned by the same family, with Jacques and Marie-Laure Perromat representing the sixth generation of winemakers today. The Chateau is situated in the Graves sub-region of Bordeaux, named so for its distinctly gravelly soil. Graves is also home to one of the most admired first growth Bordeaux, Chateau Haut-Brion. Chateau Beauregard is a classic left-bank Bordeaux Rouge. Hand harvested fruit, from 25 year old vines, is fermented in large stainless steel vats, then aged in 25% renewed French Oak. Renewed oak is a traditional old technique, where old oak barrels and vats are manually scraped out to remove the residue of previous vintages, then re-charred by an open flame to add a hint of toast qualities. Renewed oak has a significantly more nuanced impact on wine, compared to brand new oak, since much of the heavier flavors have been extracted by previous use. This wine is deep and complex. Medium bodied, with lingering tannins which can use an hour in the decanter. Hints of leather and docile hints of barn-yard which don’t overpower the wines other characteristics. You get a hint of toasty oak qualities, paralleled by a touch of black pepper and roasted chestnuts. The mid-palate really opens up with dark notes of cassis, raspberries, and wild berry vines. It comes home with signature gravelly earth, a touch of rosemary, and a polished finish. Densely structured, and still fairly tight, it should open up nicely over the next year or two.

This is one of them, and I like it a lot! Slightly on the lighter side of the Bordeaux scale, a little crisper and cleaner, this 75% Merlot & 25% Cabernet Sauvignon wine has a nice touch of tannin and mild oak. Described as "Velvety and Soft with a slight hint of tobacco and red fruit" Quite a nice Bordeaux for less than $20-

The red fruit aromas combined with toasted notes make this wine a perfect complement to red meat, poultry and various cheeses. The grapes are picked by hand with great to eliminate damaged or unripe grains. Upon arrival in the winery, they destem and use slow pressing. To obtain the excellent quality of grape pressings obtained after the harvest, the grape juice and peel macerates together during the 1st fermentation for 3-4 weeks in steel tanks in order to obtain the typical Bordeaux deep red color and tannins. The wine is then moved to new oak barrels, which starts the 2nd fermentation period. Aged 12 months in oak barrels. Very dark ruby color with bright highlights, this wine also impresses with its intense bouquet of ripe black fruit, in harmony with the roasted notes, cocoa and vanilla wood. In the mouth it is the perfect balance of its tannic structure, smooth and powerful. A Graves at once robust and delicious. The 2011 was an excellent vintage for this wine.

St. Georges is the most prestigious satellite of St. Emilion, and is a closely guarded secret among a few passionate winemakers. Pascal Delbeck is the owner/winemaker, who was former owner of Chateau Bel Air, 1er Grand Cru Classe St. Emilion. The estate is run according to biodynamic principles, and harvesting is by hand. Aged 15 months in barrel. It has soft berried fruit aromas, with ripe and integrated soft tannins with great balance and length. It is a wine made for the pleasures of the table. "This red delivers focused, if rather austere, flavors of tar, wet stone and currant, with firm tannins and fresh acidity. Polished and well-structured. Drink now through 2020."~(Wine Spectator) -I believe that this will be a "one shot deal" with this winemaker due to the complexity of dealing with them. In this case, If you like the wine, buy to stock up!
