New Bordeaux

And Les Tourelles de Longueville is Back!

In April, Jason took a wine tasting journey through Bordeaux, and this Wednesday some of his selections are finally arriving! This collection includes a bunch of great values, plus a rare three-vintage vertical of a very special wine.

2011 Chateau Le Doyenne Premieres Cotes de Bordeauxarnauds
On Sale $14.99
This rounded, full wine is densely packed with fruit, but also tannins that add balance. Blackberry flavors come through the dry structure to give both richness and freshness. The aftertaste is ripe, juicy and delicious. Drink now, but best from 2015.
91 Points, The Wine Enthusiast

2013 Chateau Des Arnauds Cuvee des Capucine Lalande de Pomerol
On Sale $15.99
Vines with an average age of 30 years give this wine good intensity that balances the firm, dark tannins. It’s a powerful, concentrated Merlot-based wine, big and generous. Ripe plums and berries show strongly through the tannic structure.
91 Points, The Wine Enthusiast

2012 Chateau Julian Bordeaux Superieur
On Sale $10.99
Mint perfumes show the wood aging of this structured wine. It does have plenty of red fruits along with juicy acidity and a lively bright aftertaste. Fresh and fruity at the end, this is ready to drink from 2015.
88 Points, The Wine Enthusiast (Best Buy!)

2006 Chateau Villars Fronsac
On Sale $14.99
Solid, with a winey core of blackberry and red currant fruit laced with mulled spice, tobacco and black licorice. Long, grippy finish. Shows nice density for the vintage. Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Cabernet Sauvignon.

Les Tourelles de Longueville Vertical

TourellesThis awesome wines is a second label of the prestigious Pichon Baron Longueville. The Tourelles vineyard separates Pichon Baron Longueville’s vineyards from those of Chateau Latour. You’re basically drinking Bordeaux’s best at a fraction of the price. And this is a rare opportunity to get three vintages side by side!

2006 Les Tourelles de Longueville Pauillac
On Sale $54.99
Black currant and dark chocolate aromas follow through to a full body, with chewy tannins, very good fruit and an aftertaste of tobacco and berry. Structured and rich. Best after 2012. 8,150 cases made.
90 Points, The Wine Spectator

2010 Les Tourelles de Longueville Pauillac
On Sale $54.99
Aromas of blueberries and spices with lots of fresh flowers. Full body, with a beautiful core of ripe fruit that balances beautifully with the tannins and bright acidity. A wine for the future yet so enjoyable now. Second wine of Pichon Baron.
92 Points, James Suckling

2011 Les Tourelles de Longueville Pauillac
On Sale $49.99
Barrel sample. This is a soft wine, with dominating fruit. It has flavors of black currant and spice, firm tannins and an attractive ripe center.
