Enjoy Bordeaux red wines this autumn.
Bordeaux red wines are made from dark-skinned grapes but the juice within is white (next time you have a black grape try squeezing it and see!). So the wines obtain their red colouring and tannins by extracting the latter from the skin and soaking the skins in the juice during maceration. This process of maceration provides the wine with its aroma and tannic structure.
Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon are the main red grape varieties in Bordeaux, but the last 20 years have seen the growth of Petit Verdot, Carménère and Malbec. This greater diversity of grape varieties offers new possibilities to winegrowers: it multiplies the options available for new blends.
Another striking fact – while Bordeaux is known for its art of blending, in recent years a wave of unexpected red cuvées is sweeping through Bordeaux and captivating wine enthusiasts young and old.
Easy-drinking, diverse and exceptional value, these modern red wines are making their mark on Bordeaux’s already world-renowned reputation for red wine production.
Crafted to drink when young, but still with great ageing potential, the new red wines of Bordeaux are the result of innovative winemakers’ exploration of new styles and modern approaches. These are the wines you would want to enjoy with friends over and over again!
When it comes to the autumn season, red Bordeaux wines are a favourite for many. An excellent wine to serve with a meat roast is a Merlot-based red Bordeaux.
Why not try a wine from Saint-Émilion, where the full-bodied structured wines with ripe tannins will pair perfectly with your meat dishes
A supple and fruity AOC Bordeaux red, a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc… is the perfect companion for convivial and simple dishes. Try it with a selection of dips or cheese boards. Perfect to enjoy with a relaxed dinner after work with friends!
Hosting a wine and pizza night? We have Bordeaux wines to match with all the possible toppings. To stand up to the strong spice of pepperoni, we suggest opting for a wine with fruity flavours and touches of spice, like a Côtes de Bordeaux made with Malbec. Its stewed small black fruits and elegant round tannins will cut through the pepperoni’s fat and saltiness, providing the perfect match!
TASTING ADVICE :
Serve chilled at 13 – 15°C
