23 Jan BEST Value in Bordeaux?
Do not miss out on one of the BEST values we’ve found in Bordeaux! This beauty hails from the folks at Chateau Angelus, and it is an amazing right bank wine that drinks well above its modest price! Six packs come sealed in wood!
2015 Chateau Fleur de Bouard “Le Lions de Fleur de Bouard”, Lalande-de-Bouard AOC
On Sale $19.99
Inky purple and full bodied. This sleeper is a total knock out in 2015! Gently fermented in the same way as the grand vin in inverted truncated cone-shaped tanks before being vinified using gravity. Le Lion de La Fleur de Boüard is smooth and big, and expresses intense fruit highlighted by careful ageing for 12 months, with 15% of the wine residing in new, French oak barrels, which imparts elegant wood notes. It is a marvelous match with braised beef or glazed pork ribs.
