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.

    Oh, Burgundy and it's famous wonderful wines that gives us so many terrific wines! Cote de Nuits, on the nothern part of this important region, is where the fullest bodied, longest lived red wines are produced. You will find great quality and variety with flavors of plum, black currant, fresh red fruits and white tobacco on the reds and also some tasty whites.

    The Wine of Kings, Barolo Wines are characteristically dry and tannic, with a strong "tar and roses" aroma and a bright ruby red colour. It always surprises people that its colour is a light red considering the boldness of this full-bodied Red Wine.
