Planet Bordeaux's insight:

Now that the weather has turned colder, we wanted to show a great lineup of some of the world’s best “hearty” wines : Bordeaux.

 

The always clever and witty James Norton of Noble Wines is bringing you an amazing lineup full of value and deep, complex flavor.

One of the best things about wine from Bordeaux is that it seems to be made to go with food—make that almost any food. From stew to fish to roasts to chicken, Bordeaux can handle nearly any sauce or preparation style. And our the final wine of our lineup tonight is nothing short of a life-changer if you happen to love cheese. On to the lineup!

 

13 Chateau Recougne Blanc Bordeaux Superiéur (Bordeaux Superiéur, France)

So often people who know Bordeaux red wines don’t know the wonder of Bordeaux white wines. We open with this strikingly fresh and expressive classic white Bordeaux blend of 80% Sauvignon blanc and 20% Semillion, the primary white grapes of the region. In the winemaking process no oak is used, so the result is a focused, beautifully “clean” wine with a nice balance between tropical notes, mineral, and a touch of herb on the dry finish. Perfect with seafood, herb-roasted chicken, or just as an excellent white to serve guests when the walk in the door.

 

10 Chateau Cugat Bordeaux Superiéur (Bordeaux Superiéur, France)
Located in the quiet, sleepy, and tiny town of Blasimon, Chateau Cugat is producing incredible red Bordeaux that tastes well above its price point. With Merlot in the lead at 60%, yet also a healthy dose of Cabernet Sauvignon, this shows lovely, plump and dark fruit notes up front with plenty of earthy and grilled herb character to back everything up. Just a darn delicious wine.
