Typical Bordeaux Red

When most think of Bordeaux they conjure images of manicured gardens, luxurious Chateaux, and perfectly positioned vineyards. Even those novice to wine would likely recognise the names of the five First Growths (Lafite, Latour, Mouton, Margaux, Haut-Brion) and associate them with wild decadence. There is more here in Bordeaux though than just fancy parties and hot air. Bordeaux is the largest AOC in France, making some of the country’s most lauded, age-worthy wines as well as highly regarded wines that you don’t have to cellar and wait oh-so-patiently to open.

    Always wondering what kind of wine you should mix with seafood? If you are planning on eating oyster or all kind of shellfish, you should definitely try to mix it with a Muscadet sur Lie! In fact, Muscadet sur Lie is bottled direct from the cask or tank in the spring following the vintage. Those wine will retain delicacy and freshness, with a full body that brings so many flavour to your food! If you are more into salmon or fishes in sauce, try out some Sancerre. Refreshing by its crispy, light fruity taste it will be more intense than a Muscadet. It is time to make a choice, would you pick up Muscadet or Sancerre? Check out our selection!
