2015 Bordeaux Rouge "La Croix Blanche" (Grand Portail, Chateau)

Chateau Grand Portail, Bordeaux Rouge "La Croix Blanche," France 2015

{sustainable} 65% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Petit Verdot

RICH STRAWBERRY & SUBTLE EARTH, SILKY BODY, SOFT TANNIN

Red wine from Entre-Deux-Mers is a rare find, and we are lucky to have found an excellent example from Chateau Grand-Portail. Young winemaker Olivier Cailleux grows his Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Petit Verdot vines on a small individual plot surrounding an old stone cross (a marker along the pilgrimage of Santiago de Compostela) where they benefit from high elevation and generous sun exposure. A palate of plush red berry fruit is backed by mellow tannins and a silky smooth body, resulting in a fresh and friendly style of Bordeaux.

Serving Suggestion:  Pizza with belly ham, fresh mozzarella, oregano, and chili oil. Tomato soup with field peas and wheat berries topped with pecorino and served with crusty bread.
