2015 Bordeaux Rouge (Chapelle Maillard, Chateau La)

Chateau La Chapelle Maillard, Bordeaux Rouge, Bordeaux, France 2015

{organic} 40% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Cabernet Franc


Closing in on equal-parts Merlot and Cabs Franc & Sauvignon, this textbook Bordeaux layers the dark fruit, minerally earth, and lightly herbaceous spice that typically punctuate the Right Bank’s greatest hits. It also showcases the enhanced ripeness and concentration that has prompted wine-lovers around the world to flock to (and freak out over) the 2015 vintage. So, with glass gripped eagerly in one hand while the other repeatedly pinches you cheek (to ensure that this dreamboat isn’t merely an illusion), enjoy this very real value while you can!

Serving Suggestions: Bison burgers w/ caramelized onions, Roquefort, and a dash of horseradish. Crimini & oyster mushroom stir fry w/ shallots, soy, & Worcestershire sauce.
