MARCH SELECTION: RED BORDEAUX. Explore Bordeaux with four benchmark wines: Chateau Lalande-Borie’s balanced, juicy Saint-Julien from the warm 2015 vintage, made by Bruno Borie of Chateau Ducru Beaucaillou fame. Also on Bordeaux’s left bank, Chateau Haut-Beausejour Saint-Estephe 2016; from the same people behind Louis Roederer Champagne this is a Merlot-led blend that is fresh, fine-textured and elegant, the perfect foil to the plush, riper, full-bodied Saint-Emilion Grand Cru from Chateau Barrail du Blanc. Finally, from the Guinaudeau family of Chateau Lafleur, try Chateau Grand Village, a Bordeaux Superieur with 8 years of age, arguably the best value Bordeaux you can find. All four halves from Bordeaux, this case gets to the heart of what makes wines here so renowned. Tasting notes, a guide to the region and producer will accompany this selection.
