12 Nov 2000 Bordeaux & More Bordeaux on Sale!
We received another slug of a 15 year old Bordeaux from one of the region’s most famous estates, Gruaud Larose. Stored at the Chateau, this mature, balanced Bordeaux is at a price that you won’t find for wine this age.
2000 Sarget de Gruaud-Larose St. Julien, France
On Sale $52.99
This château made a classic grand vin and the second wine is outstanding. Very rich and plummy on the nose. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and plenty of fruit on the finish. Serious concentration here.

2010 Croix de Beaucaillou, St. Julien
On Sale $69.99
I love the aromas of minerals, flowers, blackberries and blueberries. Full body with a fabulous texture of polished and integrated tannins. It goes on for minutes. Spicy, subtle fruit and a long and marvelous finish. Currant bush undertones. A whole and beautiful wine. The second wine of Ducru-Beaucaillou. Drink or hold.

2012 Chateau Tour Coutelin, St. Estephe
On Sale $20.99
An intense ruby color with aromas of ripe fruit and a hint of toast. The palate is supported by smooth tannins and balanced flavors of grilled red fruit such as cherry and plum.
2011 Chateau Duhart-Milon-Rothschild, Pauillac
On Sale $69.99
I am impressed with this for the vintage. It’s full and round with a succulent, juicy structure, silky tannins and a plum, cocoa, cedar and berry aftertaste. Outstanding harmony for 2011. Try in 2017.

2009 Chateau Larose Perganson Cru Bourgeois, Haut Medoc
On Sale $25.99
A sleeper of the vintage and impressive… a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot and the rest Petit Verdot. It has the silkiness of its sibling, but is fuller-bodied, with more layers of fruit and glycerin and a heady finish (14.3% alcohol). It is opulent and pure, with loads of cassis, black raspberry and licorice notes backed up with some subtle oak.

2010 Chateau Dasvin Bel Air Cru Borgeois, Haut Medoc
On Sale $19.99
Youthfully chunky, with a grippy briary structure dominant for now, showing a solid core of blueberry, blackberry and plum skin notes waiting in reserve. Features an appealing toasted wood spice-filled finish.

2010 L’Heritage de La Tour Carnet, Haut Medoc
On Sale $22.99
La Tour Carnet is to the level of excellence enjoyed in the glory days of its eight-century history, having one of the most original terroirs of Médoc using the latest cutting-edge knowledge and techniques. In the words of the previous owner, Marie-Claire Pèlegrin, it is his aim to finally cut the diamond.
2009 Chateau Coudreau, Lalande de Pomerol
On Sale $15.99
Deep red in color with aromas of red orchard fruit and notes of leather. The palate is full of fruit-driven flavors, most notably plum, cherry, raspberry and cassis.
2009 Chateau Fongaban Puisseguin St. Emilion, France
On Sale $15.99 Lowest price online!
Puisseguin is a “satellite” of St. Emilion, one of Bordeaux’s, and the world’s, great wine regions. This wine is from the EXCELLENT 2009 vintage, and is drinking perfectly at six years old. A total steal, especially for any wine from St. Emilion.
2011 Chateau Jeanguillon Bordeaux Superieur, France
On Sale $11.99 Lowest price online!
Blend of Cabernet sauvignon and Cabernet franc; good whiffs of earthiness (from the Franc) peaking through the black fruit; this is a terroir driven Bordeaux, a classic food wine!
