Chateau Roland 'La Garde' Rouge Cotes De Bordeaux (Blaye) France 2016Regular price $20.00
The creation of the Cotes de Bordeaux appelation about a decade ago was really a win for us wine drinkers, as evidenced by this delicious Bordeaux blend. 5 distinct regions along this hilly limestone-studded section of the Gironde river collectively make-up the Cotes de Bordeaux, quickly earning a reputation as a region for approachable and well-balanced wines.
The Blaye sub-region in particular is becoming known for fresh fruited, young drinking Bordeaux blends, like this one! 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet, from 20 year old organically and biodynamically farmed vines, this ripe and juicy blend will change your mind about Bordeauxs as dusty old austere wines from deep in the cellar.
Food Ideas: lamb sausage w/wild berry mostarda, rabbit cacciatore, morel risotto, jerk chicken or vegetables
